A sea of red flowers and country sky

Colorful Oregon farmland

[/caption] This is a photo of some really cool flowers that have been springing up all over Oregon’s agriculture land in the north Willamette Vally. I’m not sure the name of the flowers but they sure are pretty awesome and they are growing all over the place. This photo was taken just off of Roy Roger road, which is between Beaverton and Sherwood. I decided to grab my camera and drive to the side of the road and see what type of photos I could come up with. I ended up setting up my tripod and crouched around the field looking for the best spot to take some pictures. I took this shot with my Sigma 17-70mm lens and set the focal length at 17mm in order to get a panoramic view. I had the camera in normal/program mode and since I had the ISO at 100, the white balance at -0.7 and attached my CIR-PL, the aperture was automatically set at F-5 and the shutter speed at 1/100 second. I was facing west and the sun was pretty much at a 90 degree angle since I took this photo at 9:30am. You can see the foothills of the Coastal mountains as well as some of the vineyards and farmlands in the distance. The tall forested trees in the background create a fantastic scene along with the sky.
