Sunday Stills Challenge - Landscape


This weeks Sunday Stills challenge is Landscape. Since I've been slightly preoccupied and more or less stuck at home this week (see previous post) I haven't been able to get out and challenge myself with new landscape pics. I went thru some of my archives though and found some decent shots that I'll post instead. Please ignore the time/date stamps. I know they're ugly. Love me anyways?


The first two shots were taken on a camping trip to Nachese. It was a totally last minute, sick of being trapped at home all summer because of the boyfriends broken leg, let's just get the heck outta here, load up the Land Cruiser and head to the hills to go camping trip. Unfortunately, his Cruiser was having some issues so trails weren't a great option for us. We decided to head up the road to Ravens Roost instead of taking the trail with a group of friends. It was a beautiful view from up there and a perfect sunny day!



Doesn't that fence make you feel nice and secure?!? Fun fact of the day: I discovered I'm a little afraid of heights up there. I literally could not get within 10 feet of the edge without starting to hyperventilate.





This third picture was a trip I took to Ellensburg with a good girlfriend in '06. We were going on our annual camping trip with the ponies. This particular year we ended up camping in a friends driveway, but riding in the hills around Ellensburg both days. It was a really fun weekend.
