[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Photo was taken on Hwy 22 between Salem and Grand Ronde. Usually the herd of Buffalo are hanging out to far from the road to take close up photos of these wonderful animals but on this day last summer I was lucky to capture them right up to the fence line. My Father was with me and was having a fit because I crawled over one of the fences that keep these animals away from the road so that I could get a photo without the fence in the way. I think he thought I was going to just get in with them. =0) Anyway, a wonderful herd who really did keep their eye on me but didn't really seem to care that I was there. I see them every time I drive to Lincoln City so if you are planning a trip to the coast, take Hwy 22 and you will find them...hopefully close to the road so that you don't have to bring out the big lenses to get a good shot of them.

on another note, thank you to all who have inquired as to where I have been. I am happy that you all care so much and wish you all the best! I will try to post more often so as to not have so many of you worry! =0)

a bit of sharpening
a bit of contrast

They are massive animals - we had bison (similar or the same as these??) at our Zoo, and I was quite impressed with them.
Well seen and captured Bettina

Hello Bettina,
So nice to see you here once again and with anexcellent image of these fine beasts. Your image is great with good details and colors in a nice closeup. Thanks Bettina.

Hi Bettina,
This is a nice close shot of these animals. It is especially interesting as I live in Salem and have not seen them before. I think I may have seen them at a great distance but never at shooting range.

Hi Bettina
135 mm. Quite close indeed.
But worth all the effort as you are presenting us a wonderful image, with good clarity, eye to eye.

Have a good day.
