Perhaps my best photo effort - ever! "Moonrise over East Butte Lookout"

This was taken tonight from China Hat Butte, two miles from East Butte. Serious relative wilderness (not designated wilderness). Major planning required.

I did a dry run last night. My truck is scratched to hell from the manzanita-choked "road" up China Hat Butte, but what the hell. I constantly looked over my shoulder for mountain lions, which are ubiquitous in the area.

This image is not perfect, but I have about 100 more to sort through.

About two months ago.

I no longer hike in that section of foothills. A majestic beast, but scarey. It was probably a new mom, and they can be very fiercely protective of the offspring.

80. Although not as likely as to attack but I walked up on some Bison ...

.... on some open short grass prairie @ the Niobrara National Wildlife in northern
Nebraska .... I came up over a little sand hill and looked down to see 3 bison @ about
25 yards .... scared the crap out of me. In open country 200 yds between me and a
bison is more than enough. Funny when you are in a large animal's house and you
are not in a car or have a gun you get the feeling that they could hurt you bad in
a split second.

64. Enormous Moon: tiny are the works of Man. I look forward to the coffee table book of your photos....

I know I've been saying that for years, DemoTex, but I am a great fan of your "eye" and your talent. Please PM me if there is ever such a work in the offing -- but most of all, let everyone here know, as I know I am not alone.

Having the lookout station there is perfect, imo. It's the reason you are there in the first place, and it suggests the remoteness of the location, the difficulty of the endeavor, and yes, the smallness of the works of humankind in the face of the Universe that includes forest fires and the Moon.

82. The current lookout at East Butte was built in 1995.

So it is a "new" lookout. It is still the classic L-4 design, which I think is the quintessential western timber lookout tower. It replaced an old (ca 1930) L-4 timber tower.

Oregon has a large network of active lookouts. We have seven USFS lookouts in the Deschutes plus one ODF lookout. I also "cross" with several lookouts from other districts/agencies (USFS, ODF, BLM).

84. Nice composition but

I assume you either used a large telephoto or dropped the moon in via photoshop..it seems a little heavy on the Moon color saturation.. honestly..

86. Used a 70-200 mm (with a 2X extender on some of the shots)

Actually pulled the overall color saturation down on this one. I NEVER EVER push saturation up. The moon color was due to fairly heavy drift smoke from the Stage Coach Fire, 25 miles away.

109. I think your photo of the moon is breathtaking.

I also wanted to let you know that folks are worried about you owing to the fires in your area:

87. Jesus! Talk about mankind being small in the universe!

That really is outstanding. Even the flag is an interesting statement about how big we want to seem, flying our flags like houses of royalty, and how really small we are.

Can I use it as a desktop?
