Some days when yhe sky is clear, i dont think a lot about catching sunset, because what is a sunset without fun clouds, right? So imagine my surprise last night when i stepped outside the trailer to see this ❤️😀 in Anchot Point, Alaska
Just this week alone there have been several remarkable sunset. Since the last post I have chased a couple more in White Salmon, Washington. Funny, I use the term “chased the sunset” as a gauge to how I am doing…or chasing clouds… If I do not say that for awhile, it is time to examine my priorities and take better care of myself!
June 18, 2016, on foot, walking the streets near home looking for a clear view for Mount Hood and the sweet standing wave clouds.
Same day, a drive up on a hill gave me this view of the Columbia River Gorge at sunset.
June 19th I was busy in the house and looked out the window and ran out into the street to catch these shots at the twilight hour.
Recently I was treated to an amazing sunset over the Columbia River Gorge in White Salmon, Washington. I drove to the top of a hill, met some new friends, and fell in love all over again with clouds and wind in my hair on a hill top as day deepened into twilight. Do you know that feeling? If not, find yourself out there somewhere, by a river, on a hilltop, in a desert. Watch past the sunset, watch for the fading light, the appearance of first planets and stars… and just breathe it all in with Gratitude.
For anyone who misses my more regular posts, I have no internet at home and it has been challenging to get somewhere with everything to post, when I do pop on internet, I have so many things to catch up on I get very little done!
Anyone want to help with that? I have a Tip Jar, a donate button on my wordpress website here, on the right sidebar down aways. Working my way back into the world again slowly, it has been a slow process this year, and have not been able to really work much lately. Things are looking up however! I will be an intern this summer at the museum in Bingen on weekends… you should pop in there and check out the displays, make a small donation to the museum, or even become a member for $20 a year for individuals!
A day of driving about following an interview in Goldendale… the light came out, skies were fascinating, and here are just a few images from today’s adventure.
January 26, 2016
My friend invited me up to her birthday barbeque on High Prairie today, and I took a photo of her goose while I was there. Then, on the way back down the hill home, I caught these sunset images from Sunday night, last day of May 2015. These are processed minimally, I wanted to just share as soon as possible.
Well the sky was wild tonight! In between the call that let me know my sis was going to the ER again this week after Dialysis with super low blood pressure, and the trip to Hood River to pick her up after she stabilized again, the sky exploded. I took a few minutes to run to the nearby bluff and catch a few shots, and then headed to the hospital to pick her up. They just had to give her a bit of time for her heart rate to pick back up again, she is back on track once more.
These are straight out of the camera… no processing… and I had the camera set on standard settings, no extra color boost or contrast.
Click on the first photo, and use the right and left arrows to see them all large size.
While I do not yet have any of tonights sunset ready to print, I do have some other amazing sunsets and other images in my galleries, which you can reach from the menu at the top of the sidebar, or by clicking on this last image which is part of a display on the wall at Solstice Wood FIred Cafe in Hood River, Oregon .

Taken earlier in December, this image represents my favorite view of the Gorge for the year. I reprocessed a bit from the previous version and wanted to share it again. Taken from the hills above White Salmon, Washington looking West down the Columbia River Gorge.
