Last of the Light

Bingen Point and Marina last week at the end of the day, peaceful, refreshing, with a semi-common type of Standing Wave Cloud bridge across the Columbia River just East of Bingen, Washington.

Fall color, 2014 and from the Archives

Collection of Autumn images both current and from Archives

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.

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. Hard work, yes, but so rewarding to have a little of our own money for an occasional treat or to help buy our own clothes for school.

Current Events

January and early February have been months of amazing sunsets and sunrises and remarkable clouds. Winter has at least for the moment released its hold in the Columbia River Gorge, and over at Catherine Creek near Lyle the Grass Widows were already starting to bloom before the end of January.
