Bend Oregon Photos takes a field trip! Today I went golfing with some friends. We were looking for some cheap golf, so we headed out east of Bend, Oregon. In Prineville, there is a course called Meadow Lakes. It's not the most glamorous course in Central Oregon by any means, but for what it is... it's a pretty good value.
The photo above is of a green. I suppose I'd be a much better photo journalist if I kept track of the details, but I don't... so, I can't tell you which hole this photo is of. If you look in the image, off to the left you can see a blue flag pin waving in the wind.
Oh... the wind. Did I mention the wind yet? It was a cold day here in the high desert, which is pretty typical of Bend, Oregon and it's surrounding areas. Especially this time of year. The weather today on the course was pretty much just that (cold). We had cloud cover close to the whole time, with an arctic wind that just wouldn't stop. The clouds broke here and there, providing us with some warm sun, which was nice. It was short lived however, and those very same clouds returned with some nice central Oregon hail for us.
In this picture (photo above) you can see the wind blowing the tree limbs everywhere. This picture is taken right at the tee box, which one of the white markers can be seen in the left area of the photo. Harder to see, is a water hazard off to the right of tee box (look for the weed like willows at the edge of the grass). I liked this hole and wanted to get a shot of the trees here.
Wrapping up our day, we returned our carts to club house. As I pulled off my sunglasses, I could see light reflecting off the hoods of golf carts all lined up in the shed. I pulled out the old digital camera and took a shot. Well, apparently my camera has better light perception than I do. What looked very cool and photogenic to me, didn't translate so well in the above image. I decided I'd include it anyway.
