We had beautiful deep snow for 3 days, followed by ice, followed by melting and rain, which caused some minor flooding. The best part of all of that was opportunities to shoot some wonderous and rare photoz. Not to worry, I will not post ALL of them. These favorites were taken on our deck, in […]

Winter Wonders

In north-western Oregon we have had little snow since the winter of 2007-08. Beginning on Thursday, all of that changed as we were hit with a very cold front and lots of snow. It was a perfect excuse for a three-day weekend.   This morning I braved the 25 degrees and wandered around our yard […]

Winter Lace

Each year as we pass through the seasons certain plants take on amazing transformations. One such plant that never fails to delight me with its detail is Queen Anne’s a Lace. These two photos were taken in March of last year as the plants ready their seeds for the final act to sow them for […]

Random Shots

This random assortment of shots from prior years are some of my favorites. ImageImageImageImageImage

Frost Magic

Frost creates magical scenes. It has been cold enough several days the past couple of weeks to show off some wonderful delights. I hope you enjoy. Brrrrr. The first two photoz were taken this morning. PhotoShop helped create the top right photo, I removed the color from the background to let the one dry frosted […]

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 […]

Shedding A Little Light

This was quite a sunset. There have been no edits or tweaking done to this photo. There is no way I could hope to improve on a sky of orange perfection. This particular day, the sunset went through a full spectrum of colors. The header  photo is the same sunset, again with no PhotoShop tweaking. […]
