Eastern Oregon Incinerator

I was driving north of Burns, Oregon, and I saw this structure and had to photograph it. I ran into a couple of the locals and at one time a wood mill stood on this site, and this was an incinerator for the burning of scrap wood. I’ve seen these in other parts of the Pacific Northwest, but never this complete.

This shot is three portrait frames from the 5D MkII stitched in Auto Pano Pro for a square image. Can you tell I miss my Hasselblad? I was surprised at the quality–these are the monochrome .jpgs right out of the camera (I’m still working on the raw version). I’m guessing much of it had to do with the Canon TS-E 45mm Tilt Shift lens–it does do a stunning job.

Don’t Tell U-Haul

On the road again. Moving up to Guemes Island (in the San Juan islands off the coast of Washington State). Google maps literally sent me the shortest distance–about 80% of the  trip was on two lane backroads through Nevada, Eastern Oregon, and part of Washington. Some very interesting country: from desert to high desert, to forest and to heavy forest. I stopped  a number of times on the way and found some good images which I’ll be posting shortly. Here were a couple of places I took the rental truck… don’t tell them. 🙂
