Some photos I took during my 6am morning run. I usually wouldn't stop, but the view was too beautiful to miss out on. Shot with Samsung Galaxy S phone camera..
those are worth stopping for!
We were making buns and...
Buns are wrapped by hand, right? What is the cleaver doing in the middle?
meanwhile at ~6PM on the opposite end ...
No fancy Galaxy 2:1 ratio

Can you imagine the size of it over Oregon ?
