Late Autumn 2014

Nature never ceases to amaze me with dazzling beauty. No two minutes alike and in the blink of an eye it can be missed, never to be repeated. A few of my favorite photos taken at the end of November 2014. The sky alternated between black, bright and sometimes it was both. The sun low […]

Seeing Red

Here we go again. The scenery is so stunning this year, I can’t help but keep my cell camera busy. These photos did not need any color adjustments. Catching the mushrooms in the early morning light created wonderful shadows. The mushrooms themselves are nearly 14″ in diameter when they are fully grown and have flattened […]

Autumn Skies

Too much fascination with the minute to minute year round changes to the sky has resulted in an obsessively huge log of photos. This gallery has a tiny handful of the many shades of sky the past few weeks. Of course I also had an amazing view of overhead balloons. They were barely skimming the […]

Fall Fabulous Fall

It seems that every turn of the season brings breath-taking new sights. Every single year. This year has been no exception. This year the skies were bluer, the clouds fewer and the colors more vivid.  Everywhere I turned, another fantastic sight. With that in mind and apologies to no one, I will share a tiny […]

Good Morning

This was the very beginning of a day that was to become one of those glorious blue sky fall days. It started with the first rays of the morning out shining the still needed street lights. Taken October 7, 2013, Sherwood Oregon USA. Cheers, Shez PS To my wonderful followers; if you wonder what happened […]

Vine Maple

It was a cold, cloudy day, perfect weather for watching a football game from the comforts of our family room. Our favorite team won. After the game we went outside,  he pointed out the ray of sun hitting the vine maple. This branch stole the show with the showy array of red, orange, yellow and […]

4Days #362 Cattle Country

This was such a beautiful sight to see the cattle peacefully grazing in the light snow. Cheers to peaceful scenes, Shez

24Days #342 Trees, Fences and Snow

Trees, fences and snow.

More scenes of North Dakota.

This is one of my favorite sights along the way. I especially like that the nests in the trees show up so clearly. The wind was not blowing at this spot and it was only a bit of fine snow falling.

Still in North Dakota. It will be getting dark soon.

Cheers to the beauty of snow,



26Days #340 Green Flowers

White hydrangea blossoms turn lime green in late fall.

Winter Hydrangea

This isn’t really an archive photo, I took this in late October. This is our lovely white hydrangea. As the weather got chilly and the days short the white blooms morphed into this stunning lime green.

Cheers to green flowers,


28Days #338 Wind Breaks

Rows of trees create wind breaks between the fields.

The subtle colors of the wind rows were beautiful. At this point on the way to the train station the traffic had begun to move again. We were flying along at almost 10 miles per hour, but at least we were moving.

We were starting to sweat it out. It was almost time for the train. I grabbed my phone, prayed for service and looked online to see if I could find a phone number. There is only one train a day. If we miss this one we will be stuck in the station for 24 hours. There are no vacancies anywhere in Williston.

Yea, we had service and a message from Amtrak! The train was running 2 hours late!! We might make it after all.

Cheers to cell service,
