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.

Mt. Hood's Frog Lake

Frog Lake, Mt Hood National Forest, Oregon

I spent the good part of Sunday afternoon enjoying the sunny weather at Frog Lake. There was a slight breeze and not a cloud in the sky, so the temperatures were in the high 60's and low 70's. There was only a few people at the lake, enjoying fishing off the banks and checking out the tadpoles in the water. I ventured from my favorite spot on the south east side of the lake up to this point on the north side to capture Mt Hood peeking over the trees. Because of the breeze, I slowed down my shutter speed to show the clearness of the water, despite the choppy surface. A perfect way to spend the end of a weekend!

Ponytail Falls

Ponytail Falls, Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

After work yesterday I took the short hike up to Ponytail Falls in the Columbia River Gorge with my son and a friend. There were very few people to be seen during our adventure, and we had the falls all to ourselves. Everything was so green and lush. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon!
