As I mentioned Friday, I had the incredible opportunity to attend a photo shoot with Doc, one of the two flying B-29 Superfortress’ this past June. The original plan was to shoot one of the B-24’s out on the hot ramp, but an afternoon thunderstorm resulted in the protective covers being installed on the B-24’s which nearly derailed the shoot. Thankfully, Doc’s Friends were willing to allow us to photograph Doc on short notice.
We started with crew and civilian shots on the ground:
And then we moved inside for some cockpit shots:
It was a great shoot, and I hope to have the opportunity to do it again some day. Thanks again to Doc’s Friends and Brett for being awesome hosts and to Pete and all the reenactors who made the shoot possible!
Continuing on from Part 1 and Part 2, Day Three started with a trip up the coast to see Haystack Rock:
Terrible Tilly (Tillamook Rock Lighthouse):
Hug Point Falls:
The original plan was to continue up the coast, but due to the cloud cover, we decided that it was perfect waterfall weather, so we headed to Portland to the Columbia River Gorge. Upon arriving we found clear skies and sun. Go figure. Stops included Lower Latourell Falls:
Upper Latourell Falls:
And because the weather had cleared, the last stop of the trip was Mt. Hood for sunset:
Watching the alpenglow fade on Mt. Hood was a great way to end the trip. Thanks for following along.
Continuing from last week’s Oregon Trip Report Part 1, The second morning of the trip starts in the small fishing village of Garabaldi, which is home to the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, for a Martin Hansen photo charter with the Polson Logging #2 pulling a log train and the McCloud #25 on a mixed freight. We covered a good portion of the line, stopping in several scenic locations including Garabaldi Pier:
Second Nehalem River Bridge:
Hathaway Slough Trestle:
Stasek Slough Trestle:
and back to Smith Lake for the night session:
Thanks again to Martin for putting on an excellent charter and also to Pete Lerro for leading the night session!
