Hi Vern &Carol, I’ve lived in Or since 1962 in Springfield, then in Sisters, central Or. would love to reconnect with you both again. You have a very good eye for capturing the beauty in creation. Jan Wilson.

Very beautiful layout
Kenny Eilers 23-Dec-2020 08:55
Gawsh...So neat to receive yer PAD "Buttermilk Sky" on FaceBook. I've not been seeing your PAD's for a long time. Have you not been participating or has my computer somehow lost your connection? Anyhow, I wish you all possible Christmas Blessings and a Happy New (and improved) Year.
Don 29-Mar-2019 17:23
Thanks Vern, that was my grandfathers name. You have some very nice captures in a state I have visited a couple of times. A favorite was my working for the forest service around Crater Lake, a beautiful area. Now stuck here in Iowa. Thanks DR.

Happy 2018!!!!

Those Mountains have a lot of history attached to them. Many of the early fur trappers and traders plied their trade in those Mountains.
Gary09-Feb-2017 17:09
Thanks, Vern.
Yes, so far I like the results, but I have not been taking as many pictures as I would like this Winter. Up until a few days ago our Winter has been quite snowy, and a lot of the places I like to photograph have not been accessible other than by snowshoe or snowmobile. I do not own a snowmobile so I'm left with snowshoeing and I am getting so I can not do that as well as I once did...
Gary19-Oct-2016 16:40
Many thanks Vern. Our Fall season was really strange this year, many areas the leaves died on the trees and others were gorgeous. Our high country snows have come early and many of the Larch Firs are loosing their needles, I was unable to get up to my favorite Larch Fir area with out chaining up all four tires...
Gary26-Jul-2016 16:31
Thanks Vern, the guy that lives there is often away for weeks at a time and the deer have sort-a moved in in his absence...
Gary22-Jul-2016 15:03
This Killdeer made her nest in our lawn and I have to detour around it until the eggs hatch. I'm hoping too get some images of the chicks when they hatch.
Gary08-Jul-2016 18:00
I do not know if I can answer your inquire concerning the two 150-600mm lens. I can answer your question on the Tamron, I am quite pleased with it' performance under all types of shooting conditions. As for your question concerning, seeking focus, I have had minor problems with that function. There is a switch on the side of the lens that can be set to full, meaning infinity, and 15mm. I find if I have it set on infinity I have less problems, if any. I'm not up to date on the present costs on the Sigma 150-500mm, but given the added 100mm reach I would defiantly go with the 600mm. I ran into a guy who was shooting a Sigma 150-600mm and he was quite pleased with it' performance. Both lens seem to have similar switches as far as VC. and the infinity setting. I handled his sigma and it was considerably heavier than my Tamron. I do tend to shoot more off hand than I really should, but I have been pleased with the results. I am not familiar with any of the Nikon products as I shoot only Canon bodies. I hope this answers some of your questions Vern....
Jack 03-Mar-2016 03:09
Great pictures, Vern. We meet at Delta Ponds today. I am Jack. Then book I told you about is DARK MONEY by Jane Mayer. Hope I see you again.

Hi Vern,
Get well soon, we miss you!
Guest 19-Mar-2014 18:36
Hi Vern,

Yes there are some nice numbers, but they seem to be wide spread....
csmallari31-Jan-2014 11:28
Hi. You have so many amazing photos. I liked the landscape photos most specially. Thank you so much for sharing them with us.

Thank you for taking the time to comment of my bald eagle photo. Very much appreciated :-)
Guest 19-Jan-2014 16:49
Hi Vern,
Yes, that large white expanse in the background is a hay field and pasture. These rancher's in the Big Hole area have huge hay fields in which they utilize both as feed for their own herds and export overseas.
Guest 17-Jan-2014 16:31
Morning Vern,
I am, by far, not an expert on just how they stacked their hay, it was an art in those days, but they stacked it in such a way that it would shed the majority of the rain water and retain the integrity of the hay in the inner most part of the stack. The outer layer of hay exposed to the elements was discarded and the inner layers was used for cattle feed.
Guest 26-Dec-2013 16:11
Morning Vern,
Actually that "frosty image" was not taken on a regular river, it was photographed on a section of water entering one of our local march's near Bozeman, Montana.
Guest 14-Nov-2013 01:35
Hi Vern,
The elevation at the location I photographed that image is approximately 8500 feet above sea level...
Guest 16-Aug-2013 19:08

Guest 27-Apr-2013 15:08
Hi Vern,
No they have black wing tips and orange/red bills..
Guest 27-Mar-2013 23:46
Hi Vern,
Quite frankly I'm at an age(70+) where I'm beginning to have some vision problems and one of them is my inability to manually focus anymore... As for sharpness on the high side, if there are some I'm unable to detect any. I've read the same thing concerning the sharpness in this lens, but like I said I have no grips with it...
Guest 23-Mar-2013 04:08
High Vern,
Thanks for your nice comment on my HDR scenic...
The river is the Bitterroot River and the Mountains in the BG have the same name...
Guest 18-Mar-2013 16:45
Morning Vern,
I like this lens a lot, the only gripe I have with it is when I use my extender (1.4), the middle focusing points well not activate my auto focus feature. I have to use one of my outer points and then recompose my image. In doing so I often miss the shot. If you have good eye sight you can manual focus and take the shot, my eyes are not so good anymore so have to rely on the auto focus feature. The built in stabilizer is a great feature and works nicely in this lens. I have taken many off-hand shots with this lens and find them to be well focused..G. O'Dell
Guest 08-Mar-2013 02:00

In the summer it is rift with water skiers and swimmers...
The only enjoyable time to visit is late Fall and Winter. No people and their dogs to trip over.....

Thanks Vern for your comment on my Frosty Teasel image..
Actually we have been having morning frosts for the past week. I believe we are in for an early winter. The snows in the high country are earlier than usual and are already half way down to the valley floor...

Thanks for your nice comment on my Fall Colors and Barn image...
Much appreciated...
Essie 21-Nov-2010 06:53
I have said this before. I always admire the fact that you seem to mainly shoot with available light. I always flash everything or need I say overflash everything. I really enjoy popping in and out of your Galary. Your pictures reflect the wonderful balance you seem to have with life. Congratulations.
norbi30-Oct-2010 22:23
Thank You Vern for visiting my galleries.

Hi Vern...long time no talk to! You would not believe how far I have taken the sugar free truffle ideas.....I am at the below email address. drop me a line.Great to see how far your photography has taken you...nice stuff!
foto-baja-mex09-Sep-2010 03:45
I just did another perusal of your galleries and have come to the conclusion that you should make some sort of concerted attempt to make some inroads into the professional ranks. You are better than most of them and besides you know how to spell foto or fota in your case. ;-)))
Grace Thurston 31-Aug-2010 09:22
Hi Vern came across this site and don't know how I missed it befor. Your work is just outstanding.Bless you with many more years of great photography..
Pete Rodgers 24-Apr-2010 20:02
Vern, you are way to good for me. I have not found the eagles yet but will. I appreciate you humbling yourself to even veiw what I post. :O)

I am mystified by how you get such a pro look. People look at my work and comment, wow another that's ALMOST as good as a WalMart 40 cent special. :O( Our blessings to Carol.
Guest 13-Aug-2009 12:21
Hi Fotobug,
Thanks for all the great comments you left in my galleries.
I wish I owned a D3X - I have a very well off friend you lent me his for a week. I am hoping for a less expensive D700x someday with that kind of high res sensor.
Guest 13-Apr-2009 23:15

You got so many good shots around your neighborhood. I am going for a short trip to Oragon next week, would you recommend some places for me to go, such as sunset photography or wildbird's.

Thanks for your kind comments about my VA Tech gallery too. I still have over 600 more pictures to go through edit and add to it. It has just upset me so much.
Keep up the awesome work. It was good to see all you have done.

You have such a stunning collection of photographs. I plan to spend more time having a look through them in the very near future. I especially like the way you have your profile page set up. I have tried to do something similar, however I lack the expertise in that area. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Great galleries and wonderful work.

Our trip was through western Michigan from Traverse City to the Mackinac Bridge along Traverse Bay and Lake Michigan. The color change was intermittent thhrough this area. We crossed the Bridge at dusk. We then traveled to Escanaba which is 40 miles from the Wisconsin border in the Upper Peninsula in darkness. The picture that you chose was taken in Escanaba at first light on Sunday. The return trip to the Bridge`was very colorful. The last pictures taken that day were 20 miles north of Gaylord, Michigan. I took pictures today at Hawks Nature Center, an hour north of Detroit, which illustrate the spotty nature of our color change.
Geoff Smith03-Sep-2005 01:56
Vern: Thanks for the nice comments on my most recent photos. I'm improving each time out. Connie and I are enjoying the camera bags you sent. Thanks again!

Vern, Glad you enjoyed my photos and thanks for the comments---I love feedback. Fun to hear that you had been through the area south of Kennewick. As to more postings, I'm working my way down to Utah with that 2004 trip. Soon to come: Spiral Jetty and Antelope Island. By the way, the gallery that is password-protected will be available to the public in a few days. Cheers.

Happy shooting!

Hello, just thought I would check out one of my Dad's (Jack) "online photo buddies". I think that my favorite gallery is "Patterns", I think that the small detail captured is wonderful!

Hello, Your galleries are great and my favourite ones are "Around Town", "Manmade Objects", "The Sky" and of course "PaD". I think you capture the atmosphere of places with a great talent and the quality is wanderful! I am looking forward to see more. Also thank you for visiting my tiny gallery. Kim.

Thank you Vern for visiting my on-line photo galleries, and for taking the time to express your comments on my "Petra" album.
I browsed through your web site. Fantastic shots indeed!

Hey, saw your picture of Plains, Montana. I loved the angle. I grew up there so I think of it as a lot bigger than it is and your picture just reminds me of how small and wonderful it really is.

Vern, not only are you a great moderator to our group, but a splendid photographer. It is a pleasure to view your work.

I haven't had time to view all the photo galleries, but the ones I did couldn't be better in my opinion. You really caught the birds in flight on your coast gallery. The one with the fence and the bird is excellent. The water photos are beautiful. I will spend some more time when I can find it to view all the other galleries. Thanks for sharing. Sandy :)

VL, This site does seem to run more quickly than the other, and the layout is really clean and easy to understand. Very nice! -SP

Hi Vern, Nature is a great subject to photograph. You have done really well with these shots, they all work for me. Some of your flower pictures showed a lovely softness about them. The bird pictures are very sharp, and have great colour. One image made me think of neculear war, strange you may if pictures set off one's imagination they work, and that's what it's all about.
