A Day In Maupin OR - Part 2 - Relaxing After Rafting
Hi again. 😀 You can see the first part of this post here.
After rafting the Deschutes River in the morning we headed back to the ranch for the afternoon/evening festivities. These included libation ingestion, story telling of the raft trip, exploring the ranch and viewing a surrounding storm/sunset that was incredible.
The Giant Cottonwood Tree
During the exploration of the ranch we came upon this giant cottonwood tree.
Exploring The Ridge
We hopped in the 4 seat ranch ATV and made a run up the ridge that surrounds the ranch.
Back At The Ranch
The Storm And The Sunset
I didn't get as many shots of this event as I would have liked. Back then I wasn't as focused on photography as I am now. Plus the phone I was using to take pictures with, while good in some situations didn't seem to handle the bright and contrasting colors very well.
This is looking east as the sun is setting behind us. It was incredible how much of the sky was lit up. The partial rainbow in this shot appeared like a beam of orange light shooting down from the clouds. Something I had not experienced before.
Photos taken by me, @oldmans, with an Apple Iphone 4S with Lightroom post processing and artistic license applied.
Dream your reality. Question conventional thought. Don't let people, society or institutions tell you who you are. Be the person you were meant to be.
Feel free to leave your comments and questions. Thanks for looking and enjoy your day!
