The Persona Behind The Lens, With A Glimpse Into Our World.
Photographer: Anita Cross
Photographer Anita Cross & husband "Llama"
Amusing stories of travels throughout Oregon's beautiful–and sometimes not-so-accessible–scenic areas, from the perspective of a not-so-athletic photographer.
"You learn to see by practice. It's just like playing tennis, you get better the more you play. The more you look around at things, the more you see. The more you photograph, the more you realize what can be photographed and what can't be photographed. You just have to keep doing it"

Our weekend at Fairview Peak did not result in the spectacular sunset or sunrise pictures I had been hoping for. My husband and I had been up on the tower twice before, but neither of us remembered just how windy it is up there. Taking pictures from the tower was limited by the lighting conditions, although I did get some interesting shots.

Windy Weekend on Fairview Peak
Thursday, November 13th, 2003

We spent a weekend in the Umpqua National Forest, staying two nights at the Fairview Peak Watch Tower. Apparently, this past summer was the first year that the tower has been available for rent. We learned about it in July, and late October was the earliest we could get reservations.
