Autumn and Mount Adams

Random thoughts and images of fall leaves, burn scars,elk, and Mount Adams from the south side.

Rainbow Weather

Last night barrels and buckets full of rain fell in Glenwood, WA and in much of the northwest.  In spite of flooded foundations and water over the roadway, it all looks beautiful when the sun pops out and a rainbow shines.  This last rainbow is one from Friday, October 20 along Highway 141 near WhiteContinue reading “Rainbow Weather”

I Got Internet!!!

Since February 2016 I have not had internet at home, and therefore have not been as active online with photo sharing and social media, today I celebrate RECONNECTION!  Funny that it means so much, at times I feel like disconnecting was a great thing.  Perhaps I told myself that because “It is what it is”Continue reading “I Got Internet!!!”

Rosauer’s Rainbow

Today sis Nora and I took ourselves out to dinner at Shary’s restaurant in Hood River after her appointment across the street getting shots to help her poor arthritic knees.  She loved the food, and just doing something different and rare for her.  When we came out of the restaurant in a rainstorm, this viewContinue reading “Rosauer’s Rainbow”

Chasing Raindrops to Glenwood

This first shot was from early in February, and I hear they were seen not only here in White Salmon, WA but also in Alaska and Canada and who knows where else? This next series is all from February 7, 2015, on a run away drive aboutContinue reading “Rainbows and Eagles”

Rainbow City

Saturday I saw a bit of a rainbow as I drove through Hood River.  Driving down to the waterfront I got there just as it blew up into a full rainbow, with a double for awhile as well!  These are taken from the waterfront in Hood River, Oregon, looking north into and over White Salmon,Continue reading “Rainbow City”

Julia’s Rainbow

Another young much loved woman has passed away this last week, and my heart is so sad.  Trying to continue forward with photography and life, and stay positive.   Julia Little Brave was my stepdaughter by a former marriage, and although I am estranged from her father I have kept track of his daughter asContinue reading “Julia’s Rainbow”

Rainy Day Beauty

Even in the midst of Rainy days there is beauty…  although at times I just stand there and watch the rain fall, in a bit of a trance.  The gentle or fierce sound of the rain, leaves blowing in the wet wind, the smell of fungi beginning to grow, it all washes over me likeContinue reading “Rainy Day Beauty”
