Power of Nature

This last week we have had some amazing sunsets and thunderstorms. and I was lucky enough to get some images that made me dance.  These are all from Oregon and Washington near the Columbia River, White Salmon and Hood River. July 21 was amazing when the sky blew up in all directions.  On Facebook IContinue reading “Power of Nature”

Skies and Mountains and Rivers = Beauty

These first 3 images are from recent weeks out at Trout Lake, Washington at the Trout Lake Natural Area Preserve near town.   As you can see in the photo with people this is not a deep lake, but rather a wide spreading stream through a marshy area.  In high runnoff times the body ofContinue reading “Skies and Mountains and Rivers = Beauty”

Lenticulars and Sunset July 3, 2014

Seemingly all over the Pacific Northwest on July 3, the sunset lit up the sky with wonderful wild fire colors.  Prior to that over Mount Hood and Mount Adams, and continuing downwind to the East of White Salmon, WA, long strings of Altocumulus lenticularis clouds stacked up in clusters running primarily North and South acrossContinue reading “Lenticulars and Sunset July 3, 2014”

Bingen Sunset

This image is from a recent evening, a lovely thunderhead to the East down the Columbia River Gorge from Bingen, Washington.  Later that night, about 1:00 am pacific time, there was lightning and thunder rolling through the area quickly and a nice refreshing and much needed downpour, briefly.

Clouds and Old Homesteads

Old houses like discarded skins, with a fierce wind blowing memories around in empty hallways and upstairs bedrooms.  I often wonder, when I see one like this… where did the people go?  Where there once children working hard on the farm and learning to plow or can food?       Please take time to clickContinue reading “Clouds and Old Homesteads”

Lunar Eclipse Palindrome

Processing the shots from the eclipse got me thinking about palindromes, a favorite subject! This week every day is a palindrome! (4-14-14), (4-15-14_ etc. The Lunar Eclipse was a palindrome, ending as it started, with the lovely orange red earth shadow in the heart of the palindrome as the shadow slowly moved across the surfaceContinue reading “Lunar Eclipse Palindrome”

Dickey Farms Delight

Along with many other kids in town from my generation, my first summer job was picking beans at Dickey Farms in Bingen, Washington.

Now, as a photographer whoseContinue reading “Dickey Farms Delight”
