Autumn at Oxbow Park


I love venturing outdoors when it is rainy. The wet weather keeps most people indoors, and it provides me with nice, private opportunities to take in the beauty that an Oregon autumn has to offer. This was taken at a practically deserted Oxbow Park this past weekend. The colors from the changing leaves reflected nicely on the waters of the Sandy River.

Plethora of Mushrooms



It has been a long time since I got out and took any macro photography. I dropped my macro lens a few months back and recently repaired it. I decided to go out and hunt down my favorite macro subject: MUSHROOMS! It is the perfect time of year for mushroom macros, and there was a plethora of them at Oxbow Park this past rainy Sunday.

Sand Lake


This is the Sand Lake estuary, located on the Oregon Coast. Just north of the lake is a very popular OHV playground in the sand dunes along the beach. You would never know by the serene, calm look of the lake on this grey, foggy Oregon day. Through the thick clouds you can make out a sand bar in the water, and beyond that barely spot the edges of Whalen Island in the distance.

Cape Kiwanda



I just returned from a sweet vacation with my family to Cape Kiwanda in the town of Pacific City. The weather was classically Oregon, as it was cloudy and rainy most of the trip. However, we did not let that stop us Oregonians from having a good time. While braving the outdoors, I took this photo of Haystack Rock, which stands 327 feet above the ocean and is the fourth tallest sea stack in the world. It is also apparently one of three stacks in Oregon named Haystack Rock.

Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse



Last night we had the second lunar eclipse of the year. There was also one in April, but the springtime clouds were just too dense to get a really good capture from where I was. This time was different, however, the full eclipse happened at 3:25 AM. I had my night owl husband wake me at 3am, and stayed up about 40 minutes to take this photo. It was worth it. This full moon is also called the Hunters Moon, which is the full moon that happens after the Harvest Moon. Whatever it is technically called, I call it gorgeous!
