Trees and Clouds

As I sift through my unprocessed Archives I am finding all sorts of treasures!  Here are a few to share just for fun… these are not yet uploaded to my print purchasing galleries, just here to enjoy.  I am not going to weave a story with them right now or anything, just share them.  Please let me know if there are any you really think should be added to the Print Gallery!  

Click on that photo in the sidebar of the 2014 calendar to go see the pages of my new calendar.

 

Oh and I wanted to let you know if you are local here in the Columbia Gorge, I will be at North Shore Cafe on November 29, Friday, with other artists in a holiday Trunk Show from 5-8 pm.  The next day on November 30 I will be with many artists of all sorts over in Hood River at the Soroptimist Art Extravaganza all day Saturday.  It is located in the Conference building out front of the Best Western Hotel near the Bridge.

Flashbacks to Spring at Arches National Park

I finally processed some more images from my april journey to Utah for my Auntie’s funeral and the side trip to Arches National Park for 3 days, and sharing a few here with you!  some warm colors that blend nicely with our fall colors and help counteract the gray days.  Many of these images have now been uploaded to my galleries on SmugMug and are available for purchase now.  Just click on the SmugMug link above!

From Calm Serenity to Wild Weather, that is the Gorge!

Looking for the perfect March image for my calendar led me to this image.  I am amazed I never processed this!  Actually there are several, but only this one processed for now so I could get it in the calendar.  This is a very rare moment in the Columbia River Gorge, with this big old river so calm and reflective.  Peaceful easy feeling.

Usually the weather in the Gorge is more boisterous.  These Lenticular clouds on November 15 led me down to the river where the light was coming and going.  Lenticulars, or wave clouds, are often an indicator of a change in the weather, and we see them fairly often in the Cascade Mountain Range.

Most of these images link to their printable versions on Smugmug now, just click on the images.  They can be purchased any size.  If you are interested in in metal prints, canvas, or thinwrap styles, talk to me directly via email at starlisa.black@gmail.com

Wild and Wooly Grand Lennies over Dickey Farms in Bingen November 15, 2013

Wild and Wooly Grand Lennies over Dickey Farms in Bingen November 15, 2013

These are more photos taken the same day down at Dickey Farms in Bingen, Washington.  Dickey’s is a family farm spanning generations, and their hard work created rich bottomland gardens and green space that help keep the area beautiful and provides healthy local produce for so many. They have a lovely storefront along highway 14, with many wonderful gift items and unusual foods as well as their own fresh produce. A bakery in the store puts out pastries both sweet and savory daily.  They also carry my photo cards!

Wandering through Fall with Friends at Conboy Wildlife Refuge

Conboy Lake National Wildlife Refuge is lovely any time of year, with widely changing terrain as a large area floods and dries out in cycles.  Large herds of Elk wander the refuge, and flocks of migrating birds make it an annual stop along the route.

Here is a great news article from 2011 about conboy and its history and cycles.  

The Home Page for Conboy by the department of Fish and Wildlife is a lovely interactive experience with many things to learn.
