Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Prescribed Burn near Horse Butte

Posted By on Wed, Apr 24, 2013 at 7:43 AM

As they say there is always a photo to be had. So when my wife almost jumped out of her skin yesterday when suddenly dark smoke clouds appear right next to our house I did what I always do. I grabbed my camera.

Living in the American West makes you jumpy when you hear, smell or see fire. The arid deserts here notoriously fire prone. This one turned out to be a prescribed fire with happy firefighters running all over the place. They were happy for once to start a fire instead of always fighting one.

While they were doing their work I shot some photos with my SLR using a 70-200mm lens. The colors in the smoke and the combination of smoke, fire and the yellow firefighter outfit made my day. All it took for this photo were 10 minutes and I was back at my computer working on...of course more images.

More images.
