Oregon Vs. Ontario

April 21, 2008 at 6:47 pm 2 comments

Although both territories each have two O’s in their name, they have more differences than similarities. For the most part I think that Oregon kicks Ontario’s ass when it comes to natural beauty, but there is one element that Ontario has that Oregon is lacking in. It’s actually more of an east vs. west thing more than a particularly Ontario/Oregon distinction.

Here is a picture from each area. The first picture is from Oregon’s Fort Rock. The second picture is from Ontario’s Petroglyphs Provincial Park. Each has an element that is particular to the province/state.

Can you spot the difference?

If not, here’s a hint. It’s something that photographers, when taking landscape shots, will often photoshop into the photo to make it more dynamic.

*** Just a note. I’ve decreased the quality of the photos – dont’ want to use up all the free photo space WordPress provides us.

    You’ve lost me. Is it the clouds? Blue skies? Water? Reflection of clouds in water? Grass? Trees? It could be any number of things. Dynamism implies movement… So – the clouds?

    If it is clouds or water, I’m sure there is no shortage of them on the Oregon coast, just like on the BC coast. The photo you gave here is of the desert interior.

    What is the one thing Ontario has?

    I’m going to guess clouds, as its pretty dry E of the mountains. I live in Washington (pretty similar to Oregon) and the landscape in the picture is very typical of the land E of the Cascade mountains (over 2/3 of the states area) but West of the mountains near the Pacific (where Seattle is) its the opposite, clouds everywhere all the time. Big grey ones that blot out the sun for weeks at a time.
