Benham Falls

Benham Falls, Deschutes National Forest, Bend Oregon

I was out in Central Oregon this past weekend visiting family. On Saturday, we all piled in the car and drove out a bit west of Bend to the popular Deschutes River Trail recreation area. There we visited Benham Falls. The short stroll down to a viewing area was packed with people, but I did not get discouraged. Not to be one to settle for the "shot from the platform", my Dad, my brother and I walked a bit farther down the designated trail and then veered off into the woods to reach the river. From there, I climbed up a rocky area and leaned against a tree, set up my tripod and did my best to capture the water below and around me.

Trucks After Twilight

light painting old trucks under a starry sky

I tried my hand at something new this past weekend. I had never tried light painting before, but with the help of my brother, we lit up these two old trucks on my Dads property outside of Prineville, Oregon. Let me tell you, it was so much fun! I am glad that my Dad did not look out his window at us in the middle of the night, running around these trucks with our flashlights. He would have thought we were crazy for sure!

Warm Skies over Timothy Lake

Sunset over Timothy Lake, Oregon

Last weekend, a group of my friends, my son and I spent an amazing sunny Saturday up at Timothy Lake. The campgrounds up there have not yet opened, so we parked at the gate and walked in. It was awesome having practically the entire lake to ourselves. There was a lot of fish caught and fun had, and at the end of the day, the skies color briefly turned warm before the sun went down.

Crimson and Clover, Over and Over

Crimson Clover Field and barn outside Forest Grove, Oregon

My Mothers Day wish was to get out and take photos. Well, that is actually my wish every weekend, but I had a destination in mind this particular day. I knew that the crimson clover fields were in full bloom this time of year. We headed west towards the town of Forest Grove, Oregon, and winded along the back roads to the north west of the town until we came across this amazing landscape. The huge red field was buzzing with bees and the old farm in the middle just added to the scene.


(PS) Thank you so much to my brother for getting the old "Crimson and Clover" song stuck in my head for days.

Golden Light over the Columbia River Gorge

Vista House - Crown Point from Portland Womens Forum, Corbett, Oregon, Columbia River Gorge,

I always swing into the Portland Womens Forum when I am in Corbett, Oregon to take in the view of the Vista House on Crown Point. I almost did not get out of the car to take this photo, but I am glad I did because it turned out being quite a gorge-ous display with the golden light hitting the waters of the Columbia River below and the moody clouds above.
