Rain Beaten Rhodys

Yes, we went camping this past weekend and yes, we got rained on. But it was a good time. The quarter mile hike in to our campsite was lined by large blooming rhododendron bushes. The first day was sunny and the blooms were fresh and perky. I took this one the second day. The blooms had been covered with raindrops and the light pink blossoms were practically see through from the bright white cloud cover above.

(PS) WOW - I just noticed this is my 600th blog post! Go me!


  1. It makes a lovely photo but perhaps an uncomfortable camping trip. The rain didn't make it as far as northern California but the weather was cool and the sky beautiful for our camping trip.

  2. Beautiful photo, I love how you captured the light coming through. I would swap our constant 100F+ temperatures for your cool even rainy climate right now :-)

  3. Photo in rain on flowers is very nice.. I like this, but not the weather in rain;)

  4. Really wonderful capture!

  5. Congratulations on Post 600 and what a stunning shot! The rhodie looks like it's covered in sparkling jewels! Please send us your cool, rainy weather. I may never leave my house till fall.

  6. Although delicate looking, they stood through it all. :)

  7. Gorgeous! I love the way the petals seem to be transparent! And raindrops are always welcome (for the first couple of days, anyway)!!

  8. Such a beautiful view! Luving camping & photography too. The colors are soft and rich.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
