So, I have revamped my site. What do you think? You can now access the site by simply going to HoodPhotography.com. You can still access it by the old address indefinitely (http://gresham-hoodphoto.blogspot.com). All the links that I had in my sidebar are now at the very bottom of the blog (photo memes and archives in particular). I have also included a bio link at the top of the blog so you can get to know a bit about the girl behind the blog, as well as a link to my photo prints store and info about my weekly photo meme, Orange You Glad It's Friday. Check them out!

I took a week off from photographing anything new to catch up on these updates and figure out some photography goals. I came to the realization that I love the path I am on. I love nature. I love the area I live in. I love learning the things my camera can do and I love to showcase those newly learned abilities in my landscapes, macro and nature photography. Those are where I am concentrating my efforts. Thank you to everyone who has followed this blog, and who have "liked" me on Facebook. I appreciate each and every single one of you.

Todays photo was taken on a wonderful hike this weekend with a dear old friend of mine. I have only recently reconnected with this friend and am excited to have the opportunity to visit old and new places of interest of ours together in the future. 

I start with this photo because I just happened upon it by pure accident. I was coming back up the path we visited this weekend and saw dangling off to the side. I captured this beautiful frozen weed, before it met its melted demise in the sun that was peeking thru the clouds above us.

  5. I'm going to describe your image as stunning, even though the book I'm currently reading by Louise Penny has a character say how the word 'stunning' was overused by those in the art world. I say it because what else could ice be in light but stunning!

  11. What a great macro! That is really neat the way the ice is on the plant. :)

  12. Winter suspended. Lovely shot. It's good to take some time away from the blogosphere to do some thinking about what your focus will be, what you enjoy photographing and writing about. I need to do that too.


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