Sunbreak in Blue and Silver: Columbia

Sunbreak in Blue and Silver: Columbia

I'm continuing to work my way through the list of artists ahead of my class this week.  Another painter who interested me was James Abbott McNeill Whistler.  He had a series of beachscape and harbor paintings where he placed the horizon prett...

Back to Hood River

Back to Hood River

Ok, I admit it.  I'm a little fixated on the gorge right now, and especially on this marina in Hood River.  Bill and I were actually heading south of the Dalles yesterday, but I did time the trip for driving through Hood River just after sunr...

Piet Mondrain, Revisited

Absolutely gorgeous weather here in Washington today.  It started out inspiringly foggy and ended up beautifully warm and sunny.  Bill and I were out for a Sunday drive and hike through the gorge, and happened upon a fun antique/junk store in...

Tree on the Columbia

Tree on the Columbia

I'm still working through the list of artists in my Artistic Photography class.  And I'm not really sure I'm photographing "in the style of" Piet Mondrain (see below) with this photo of the winter tree against the Columbia River, but his painting ...

Farm in Vancouver Winter

I started an artistic photography class this week, and for my first assignment I have to photograph in the style of a famous artist. We were given an alphabetical list of several dozen artists to study, but I didn't make it past Cezanne before heading ...

Hood River Marina

Hood River Marina

A misty rain was just starting to blur the reflection at Hood River Marina yesterday. I was so happy to stumble upon this marina, because it's just what I've been imagining photographing.  Mind you, I've been to Hood River at least half a dozen ti...

Quay Point

Quay Point

Our side of the gorge was incredibly windy, but all was quiet and calm once we neared the Hood River side of the gorge earlier today.  This fence runs the length of the pier at the Hood River Marina.  I'm not sure it's purpose, but it made a ...
