As I viewed my images from the incredible weekend that I had, this particular image really stood out for me. It was the last image I took, before leaving the Alvord Desert in Oregon. We had only gotten about 3 hrs of sleep, but it was so worth getting up for. As I looked at the image, the clouds looked like a Phoenix rising up from the dry desert earth. The "Phoenix" is a symbol of a renewal or rebirth. It is a reminder to me, that no matter how far we fall, or how bad things get.... We all have the strength to rise again, and come out even stronger than we were!!

I'd been on a countryside walk but didn't see anything that really caught my eye. As I was getting into the car, I noticed a splash of orange and went to take a better look. I was really surprised to see this slightly scruffy and rather windswept but still lovely poppy, almost hidden amongst the tall grass.

I had heard about the famous Dalles Mountain Ranch. People from miles around come to shoot this old car. I knew that if I wanted a shot, I had to act fast. The flowers had already reached their peak. I got up at 5 and drove 2 hrs to this place. It was totally worth losing a little sleep over. When I see stuff like this, I often wonder about its story. I wonder who the people were, and how the car happen to be left here, and why. No matter what the story is, though our photographs, the memories live on.

I had been to Palouse Falls twice before. The skies were always not very favorable, but this time I hit it just right. As I stood looking at the scene, there seemed to be a peacefulness about it. It was a perfect ending to a very long week.

The Central Valley Foothills are alive and well after an early rainfall, helping to relieve our 4 year drought! Bring on some spring rain now!

Two week old cut flowers portend a successful Super Bowl 50 campaign, do they not?

This is for the Sunrise/sunset challenge.

On this particular day, the smoke from the fires had been really bad. We had wanted to go out shooting earlier in the day, but it was just too smokey. I had not totally given up hope, and thought that with all the smoke in the sky, that it could create a pretty sunset. So at the last minuet, we grabbed the gear, braved the smoke, and headed out. We were looking for the perfect spot, when we came upon these trees. We quickly pulled over, as we were running out of time. We only had just a few minutes to set up, before the sun started to set. Out of all the devastation the fires caused, it did make for some awesome sunsets.

Re-share of an older image that I still love.

Early in September, before the fall colors really got going, I found this one tree with some color on it. This was a place called Lower Lewis Falls, in Washington. I had seen a lot of images from this place, and wanted to try for something a bit different.

When the Ocean is calm, or the tide is low, Thor's Well can seem very tame. But in a matter of moments, it can become a very dangerous place. While there is some risk being that close to it, I love feeling the power it has, and watching the waves come crashing in.

We had scouted out earlier in the day, where we wanted to set up for sunset. I had been practicing my long exposure for the waves, so I would be able to catch them just right as the sun was setting. It was not very easy. Only being 5'3, I had a hard time standing with the waves coming at me. I even got chased away a couple of times. But, I knew if I wanted to get my shot, I had to stand my ground, and take what the ocean had to give.

Surrounded in fallen leaves
Sodden underfoot.
No crisp, no crunch,
as is the norm here in the rainy season...

All is right with the world

Empty playgrounds,
Always an eerie sight,
Echos of squealing children,
ghosts of fun had in summer sunlight
travelling through the autumn mists

Littered the ground, these sun drenched crunching leaves
cozy next to that picket fence,
Wading through them like sprinklers in the summertime
Brings home all that childhood wonder

What is green is gold. What is pink is gold
What is purple, orange, yellow, faded and worn.
Is gold.

Autumn GOLD

We drown in water ankle deep,
Because the adults aren't watching.

Not quite as clear as the other one, but this view shows the missing leg and the length of the spread out legs.

An old farm house in Lopez Pa! This farm house was tucked deep in the country found this totally by accident! The colors of fall were definitely calling to be photographed!

Another creation of the mind...this is what happens when you're alone at night in the house with a camera, flowers and lots and lots of old books.

I was outside watering the garden and I turned around and was astonished at the sky so I ran inside and came out and it had of course changed dramatically but I snapped a few photos that still had some little portion of the colour that made me run inside with wet feet. This was my favourite.
