Abbey Bach Festival

Dad and Diana go to the Abbey Bach Festival in Mt. Angel, OR every year. I've always wanted to go, and this year they gave me tickets! It was a lot of fun, and the music was very nice. I drove down Thursday afternoon, and back up Friday morning (arriving home at about 03:30).

1: The monks at the Mt. Angel abbey invite everyone to the Vespers service beforehand. This is one of the stations of the cross, inside the abbey proper, just across from where we were sitting.

5: After the concert and the reception, I was walking back to my car. The belfry struck me as being particularly nicely illuminated, so I took a series of ten or so long-exposure images and built an HDR composite in Photomatix.
