Landscape Photography Exhibit at the Redmond, Oregon Airport!

I have always been a person who possess a strong sense of place.  Where I live has always been a great source of happiness for me.   My wife, Debbie  and I selected to live in Central Oregon nearly 15 years ago because it has an amazing geographic diversity and all the amenities we could want.    My Landscape photography is often used as a semi-official representation of the natural beauty of the Central Oregon area.  This usage of my work to represent Central Oregon is truly flattering and it inspires me to continue to refine my landscape photography portfolio.  I recently opened an exhibit at the Redmond, Oregon airport, located just 20 minutes from my home in Bend.  This usage of my fine art prints makes me as proud as any previous exhibits involving my photography.  The Redmond Oregon airport is truly a gateway into and out of Central Oregon and having my landscape photography be one of the first representations of Central Oregon that visitors see when they arrive at the Redmond Airport, makes me beyond proud.  All of the landscape photos in this blog entry are currently being exhibited at the Redmond Airport and they are all for sale, so feel free to contact me (541) 610-4815 and I can arrange for shipping of the print of your choice.  It is also important to note that all of the Landscape photos being exhibited at the Redmond Airport are also available in multiple different sizes.  For a list of the prints sizes I offer, please visit the pricing and sizing page of my website.  Landscape Photography Pricing.

We initially moved to the small town of Sisters, Oregon and we eventually settled in our current hometown of Bend, Oregon. The view Of Central Oregon’sThree Sisters mountains seen below is located between the cities of Sisters and Bend, Oregon.

The High Desert vistas with the stunning alpine backdrop of the Three Sisters Mountains and Broken Top Mountain are very well represented with this elegant landscape photograph. The Central Oregon Cascade Mountains are only part of what makes this wonderful part of the world special.  Smith Rock State Park, is near the city of Terrebonne, just minutes away from the Redmond airport.  Smith Rock’s stunning rocky spires draw rock climbers from around the world.  Because of the it’s strong vertical lines and the adjacent Crooked River, Smith Rock State Park,  is also a paradise for landscape photographers and it one one of the locations that adds to Central Oregon’s remarkable geographic diversity.

Located near our first Central Oregon home, in the city of Sisters, Oregon, is the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness area, where One can fine some of the most stunning alpine wildflower meadows anywhere in the United States.  Both of the following landscape photographs from the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness Area are currently on display at the Redmond Airport.  This first landscape photo includes the amazing Mt. Jefferson and a beautiful wildflower meadow

Also in the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness Area is Three Fingered Jack, which offers some of the easiest access to high alpine areas in all of Oregon as well as some of the most beautiful meadows filled with lupines anywhere in the world.  The Lupines in this print are not always this stunning but the hike to this meadow, Canyon Creek Meadow is always stunning, with or without the lupines.

Closer to my current home in Bend, Oregon, is the gorgeous, Tumalo Falls.  The following print  of Tumalo Falls is also currently on display at the Redmond airport.  This Tumalo Falls print has an elegant feel and it does an excellent job of capturing the grandeur of this iconic, 97 ft high waterfall, located near the town of Bend, Oregon.

There are also several oregon landscape photographs currently on display at the Redmond Oregon airport which I captured in and around the Three Sisters Wilderness area, located west of Bend, Oregon.  One of  the most beautiful landscape photographs I’ve ever captured is the following photograph of Sparks Lake, located near Mt. Bachelor, Southwest of Bend, Oregon.

This was a rare windless sunrise over Sparks Lake that allowed me to capture this scene of the always beautiful scene near the Central Oregon hub of Bend, Oregon.  Sparks Lake is a shallow, easily accessed lake which has a boat ramp and camp grounds and is only 22 miles from the town of Bend, Oregon.  A gorgeous 50 inch wide print of this image is currently on display at the Redmond airport.  It is important to know that smaller and less expensive sizes of this print are always available so please visit the pricing page of my website to view the prices associated with the available print sizes.  A less grand but equally elegant image of mine was captured within the Three Sisters Wilderness which is visible in the above image of Sparks Lake, near Bend, Oregon.  This image of a lovely alpine stream is sort of an un-paid assignment given to me by my loving wife!  Years ago she gave me the simple charge to capture “a stream with pretty flowers”.  Easier said than done but eventually I finished the assignment and now a print of this delicate piece of alpine bliss is on display at the Redmond airport.

The last landscape print that I will share is also on display at the Redmond airport , “Summit Sunrise” does an excellent job of capturing the essence of what I want in a beautiful landscape photograph, it captures a “Sense of Place”.  I camped on the summit of Central Oregon’s South Sister purely for the purpose of capturing this image with my 4×5 film camera.  This print, “Summit Sunrise”, does an amazing job of capturing the experience of standing atop of South Sisters amidst morning alpenglow.  The view of the Oregon Cascades is sweeping, including, Middle Sister, North Sister, Three Fingered Jack, Black Butte, Mt. Jefferson, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, and Mt. St Helens, all being bathed in the pink glow of alpenglow.

In addition to all of the images seen above, I have several additional fine art Landscape photos also on display at the Redmond Airport.  For more information about My various display locations throughout Bend and Central Oregon, please visit Bend Oregon Art Gallery.  This new website will highlight which fine art landscape photographs I will have on display at my various “Bend Oregon Art Galleries”.

Thanks for visiting  and if you happen to see my landscape photographs at the Redmond Airport, please drop me a line and let me know what you think!

Happy Holidays,

Mike
