Lunar Eclipse



The first lunar eclipse of 2014 happened over Monday night into Tuesday morning. The total phase of the eclipse started at 12:08am PST. I went out into my backyard with my camera at about 11pm and started to take some photos. Disappointingly, clouds moved in right about 11:45 and I was only able to see slight glimpses of the total phase and missed all of the blood red hue. But I was able to make this mini-collage of what I was able to capture before the cloud cover moved in.

Sunlit Dew Drops



Each morning, my lawn is covered in beautiful dew drops, and during the recent sunnier weather we have enjoyed, the droplets sparkle in the morning sun.

Under a Mushroom


Weather around here has turned very nice lately. We have enjoyed a full week of sunny skies and warmer temperatures. When the temperatures rise after months of soggy wet weather, mushrooms are sure to appear, and I am sure to go out with my camera to hunt them!

Trilliums Make My Spring Complete


While Spring has just only begun to have sprung, I always feel like my spring is complete when I see trilliums. I have spotted a few this year already, but had not yet had my camera handy. I have taken so many photos of trilliums, I am always trying to find a new perspective that I have not captured before.

Sunset over Chinook Landing



As I mentioned in yesterdays post, I visited Chinook Landing a few nights ago with my son. We strolled along the the Columbia River bank and caught this beautiful end of the day.

Chinook Landing Golden Hour


Last year, I visited Blue Lake Park a few times and Oxbow Park about a dozen times with my son. He was too young to really walk along with me at that point, but I knew this year I would be visiting these local parks a lot more with him. It was true. Now that he is a full fledged toddler and all he wants to do is run around, we visit any and all parks as often as the weather will allow. This is why I splurged and purchased the Metro Parks Pass, which means I get into Blue Lake, Oxbow, and a handful of other area parks without having to pay the parking fee. We visited Chinook Landing (also covered by the pass) off the Columbia River at the golden hour a few nights ago, and I knew we would be frequenting this place often.

Mossy Wonderland


This photo is so reminiscent of my childhood. We would step out our back door into the woods and this is exactly what it looked like. Green, mossy, forested. Beautiful.

Springtime Mushroom



There has been over a week of rain here in the Pacific Northwest, so a day with sun breaks was much needed. We took advantage of the warmer temperatures and clearing skies to venture out to the woods and breathe in the fresh spring air. There were mushrooms EVERYWHERE, and I literally had to stop myself after photographing about a half a dozen macros.

Daffodil Backside



Next week, I hope to have a batch of fresh new photos to share with you, as the wait the replacement of my broken lens has finally concluded. I hope to take my newly acquired lens out this weekend and scratch my photography itch, as it has been two weeks since I have really pushed myself to try to capture anything new. I have been limited to a backup lens and the findings of my own backyard, such as this freshly bloomed daffodil captured just as the last of the golden hour light hit the backside of its petals.

And with that, I wish you a happy weekend!
