Here’s an example of some of those great, long, October shadows I mentioned in today’s earlier post.

I took this shot yesterday. The trees grow on top of Buttercup, a knoll in the Central Linn area (Shedd, Brownsville and Halsey, Oregon make up Central Linn County in Oregon’s Willamette Valley). This hill is well known by local hangliders, whofirst go here to learn the sport, before moving on to higher elevation at nearby Peterson’s Butte in Lebanon.

I did some post-processing with light and color balance, and used a warm lens special-effect in Photo Explosion.

I’ve been playing with sun flare, or lens flare – whichever you prefer to call it – recently, to see what I can do with it. I utilized it a little in this shot. When I’ve learned more, I’ll post about that, too.
