Black & White Wednesdays ~ Wide Open Spaces


Come.
Walk with me.
And take a look at my favorite valley.
{Prineville, OR, USA}






"Love recognizes no barriers.
It jumps hurdles,
leaps fences and
penetrates walls to arrive at its destination
full of hope."

  2. Very striking. I like the second photo best, and the way the water is blurred in that last one.

  4. Now there's a quote and wow, what a view. Rural, but a very different rural than what surrounds me. This landscape lends itself well to black/white.

  7. A most enjoyable walk it was too! My favorite and the one which totally draws me in are the railroad tracks!

  8. These views make me think of our road trips in Utah - when we would drive by farms we often saw their sprinklers on! Great memories:)

  16. Girl you did an amazing job with these shots. After each one I kept saying, How cool is that and then I'd see the next one and be just as awed. I think #2 & #3 are my top choices. Such fabulous countryside and great details. - So how close is Prineville to Walla Walla?
