Sauvie Island lies in the Columbia River 20 miles downriver from Portland. Farms, beaches, wildlife areas, and lakes are home to eagle, osprey, otter, beaver, cranes, geese, and cattle. It’s a very popular recreation area in the summer, but in the winter there are few visitors.
These photos were taken about ten years ago. The beached ship is someone’s dream, a concrete boat, that didn’t work out….or maybe it did, dreams can change like that. For the landscape work I was shooting Tri-X Pan and a deep red filter, which is a hard combination to beat for winter photography.
love the vertical elements
