The Photographer's Birthday



My son the photographer celebrates his birthday today and so I'd like to share with you these shots he took last weekend because they so speak to his talent and his love of the outdoors. The river you see depicted is The Metolius River found here in central Oregon and I believe it to be one of the most beautiful pristine rivers in the world. The silhouetted flyfisherman you see in both photos is my husband R and the photos themselves are part of a final project for one of my son's classes entitled "The Essence of Flyfishing in 10 Photos". The beautiful soft quality of the raging water was achieved via a long exposure. Otherwise there was no manipulation in these gorgeous photos. Happy birthday, J, mom, k
