A Night at the Lake

Last night I headed out from home about 11:30 pm on what has become a more rare adventure. There were rumors of Aurora activity, so I headed to a favorite location. I did get a few shots of the Aurora and am including one picture taken by the phone of the camera LCD screen. Then I crawled into my bed in the truck in spite of the very cold temperatures, and had a good sleep for a few hours. Waking up at sunrise I crawled back out and captured a few shots of a lovely morning. The golden light on fall leaves was delightful. It was a beautiful clear day and I fixed myself a small breakfast beside the lake. Such precious moments alone in nature, full of peace.

Except the Aurora shot These are all iPhone shots processed in phone while I am sitting in the parking lot of Heavenly Grounds and The Station Cafe in Trout Lake. I just restocked my photo cards here so if you are local and looking for cards there is a new selection of 20 cards available. If you are in White Salmon or Bingen area you can find my cards at Artisan’s and Dickies. Some of my large images are on the wall at North Shore Cafe in White Salmon, Washington

Mirror Lake on Mount Adams

I recently was blessed to witness this amazing sunset that just did not end for the longest time, moving from orange through red into pink and purple…

and a while before that I caught this more subtle one.  I love to be up here in Tract D and Bird Creek Meadows.  The season will not be lasting much longer, possibly end of September or mid October the gates will lock back up.

Aurora Borealis in Washington State

The featured image above and this next image are from June7,2013, as Northern lights danced in the midnight and early morning sky while I danced around my camera in the silence of a mountain night… which is never really silent, but alive with the songs of the stars, the movement of nocturnal birds and animals. The sort of silence that refreshes my spirits even without the Aurora dancing overhead!

ahhh, a night when color filled the sky to the north of Mount Adams, in southern Washington. What a great night!

More of the same feeling of the deep night on June 1 as I snapped images from 1 am until sunrise near Mount Adams. The rich tones of the night recharged my spirits and brought me energy. This next slideshow is taken throughout that night into sunrise. I hope you enjoy!
