Lenticular show

November 15, 2018 was amazing, lines of mountain wave clouds, stacks of lenticular clouds like ducklings in a row. One stack at the top of each wave of fast moving air.

I raced to my favorite spot, over looking Mount Adams, and found this scene. enjoy!

Fog thick as Pea Soup

The last few days have been full of fog, great rivers of undulating white streamers of fog crashing up the banks of the Columbia River Gorge like big waves at the beach during times of high tide and winds.

Driving around the Bald Mountain turns on Highway 141 out of White Salmon tonight was like driving through split pea soup. It reminds me so much of childhood when we would have a lot of fog. My dad would call it split pea soup so thick you could cut it with a knife, he said. When a car comes to wards you through the thick fog, you hardly see them at all until they’re almost level with you. The fog travels in fingers of undulating White up from the rivers below, and you will suddenly break out of the fog into perfect clear, then dive back into white so thick it’s hard to see your hand in front of your face. There is something so mysterious and beautiful about fog this thick, as though you could come out of the fog bank into a different time or place, a different world

Old favorites revisited

These are images that are part of my heart, some of my favorites to bring back around. Most of these are available on my Smugmug site, they are often hanging in my gallery shows, and look gorgeous on Metal prints, Thinwraps, Gallery wrapped Canvas, or Prints

Blogging changes

I’ve started a side branch blog called “Starlisa Stories” at starlisastories.wordpress.com

I will do a lot of this deep journaling, philosophizing, mental health, ADD AND Autism, and self-help kind of posting on that blog and keep this one for Photography. Truly they often get mingled anyway! My thinking is there are certain people who are really interested in the journaling aspect of my work and others who preferred just the photography.

I would love feedback from anyone reading this!

It’s also a bit confusing simply because both pages use the same iconic Starlisa Black Photography logo. If I figure out a way to separate that I may do so, or is it better to keep it all tied together that way? Anyone else that does more than one blog?
