New on 500px : Pear Blossoms by dansherman by dansherman

Probably one of the most photographed scenes in Oregon, which was proven for me on this morning. Checking this spot out the previous night, showing up late after all the light had gone, we found several other photographers huddled together shooting the ‘best’ view. So, Jeff Barnhart and another friend of mine tagging along (who proved quite useful for my previous shot at Rowena) decided to show up a half hour before sunrise to claim our territory in this orchard, and we found two other photographers already set up! It took some time for Jeff and I to find ‘the second best view’ and we pretty much didn’t move from our spots. It didn’t take long before several other tripods and their photographers began setting up nearby. Jeff attracted a couple photogs that didn’t seem at all embarressed by comp-stomping his scene. Clearly, it seemed that we were all trespassing on this farmer’s land, but, as our tagalong pointed out, if they didn’t want us there they could have easily turned on all the sprinklers and got rid of us pretty quickly. Anyway, I am very happy with the shots I got and the nice alpenglow on the mountain. Next time, I guess will just have to sleep in my spot overnight…
