Gold Creek Pond

Gold Creek Pond

We were up in Seattle for a birthday celebration last weekend, which means we got to visit our son at college. He got up with me and Bill well before dawn, and the three of us headed up to Snoqualmie Pass for a sunrise hike around Gold Lake Pond. It wa...

River’s Edge

River’s Edge

Here's my final photo from our hike along the Netarts River outside of Tillamook. It happens to be the first photo I took too. I would have liked to place these rocks differently, but the large rock is half in the water and half on land, so this image ...

Netarts River

Another version of the liquid gold photo from our fall hike along Netarts River last week.  I felt like there was more green than yellow in the trees, so the reflection color was really surprising to me. I compared these images to some from a phot...

Netarts Bay

Back to the foggy coast for today's photo...salmon fishing in Netarts Bay. When I was hiking along Netarts River I ran into a fisherman catching trout. I should have asked him about the salmon. At some point soon they should enter the river. I imagine ...

The road to Tillamook follows the Netarts River down the coastal range. I didn't have to get very far away from Tillamook, maybe 15 minutes driving, before I had left the thick fog behind and found myself in a beautiful sunny early fall scene. I could ...

Bayview Jetty

A slightly foggier scene from my trip to Tillamook, Oregon yesterday.  This jetty just north of Tillamook is connected to a beautiful rock outcropping with some spindly pines growing on it; they reminded me of Monterey.  At the time I didn't ...

Low Tide

Low Tide

I've missed a few opportunities in the past month for a low tide sunrise photo, but thought conditions would be right for a beach visit this morning.  I started out under a clear sky, following the setting blood moon until I approached the coast; ...

Well, I actually wanted to pick up the camera yesterday, which I consider a very good thing.  I'm not really sure why this particular parking lot scene inspired me, but I'm not going to question it too much either.  I've had a couple of day t...

Not at the shore (I wish, though!) Just taking a photography break this week.  It does look like I will have some waterfront scenes to post before the end of the month...Today's photo was taken during a foggy stroll down the beachin Long Beach a f...
