If there’s anything that we never run short of in Oregon, it’s the endless beauty in every direction you travel. This can make it very difficult sometimes for me to put these articles together, as I struggle with picking and choosing which jaw-dropping photos captured in Oregon I’m going with.

Nonetheless, while there may have been probably thousands of photos to choose from in 2015, I think I did a pretty good job putting together a pretty decent compilation here, highlighting some of the best photos all around Oregon from so many amazing photographers. We truly are blessed to live here, and I feel it’s easily one of the most beautiful places in the world.

As always, I’d like to personally thank every single photographer that shares their amazing work in Oregon, as it would be impossible for us to make these articles happen. We’d also like to thank so many of our followers for personally sending us photos. While I can’t share them all(and I have shared a couple of our followers pics in this article) trust me when I say, I do appreciate them very much! It was a great year for That Oregon Life, and I look forward to sharing another great year in 2016 with all of you.
