In October, my husband and I purchased our first home. I carefully moved the perennial plants from my garden boxes at the rental we previously lived in and brought them to their new home. They pretty much all survived and are doing fairly well considering the move. I also accumulated plants from other family members. My mom gave me this gorgeous bright pink hollyhock, which is in its prime bloom right now.

Gorgeous End of the Day at Lake Salish

I have been waiting for the chance to capture a truly breathtaking sunset this summer. It seemed every time I was in the right place with my camera, the end of the day proved to be less dramatic that I had hoped. However, on Monday evening, there was a break in the overcast clouds that had hung around all day, creating the perfect scenario for a beautiful sunset. My son and I headed out to Lake Salish in Fairview for our evening walk and eagerly awaited the sun to go down. It was unbelievably pretty. The constant changing of the clouds and colors was simply amazing, and well worth the wait! This is just one of the favorite captures I took that evening.

Upper North Falls

This is Upper North Falls, located in the Silver Falls State Park. I took the short walk to the falls on Saturday with my toddler son and some friends. There was not a cloud in the sky and the temperatures were in the high 80's that day, so feeling the mist from the waterfall while we stood on the bank and took in it's beauty was very welcome.

Bank of Fog

Taken in the early morning at a field near Blue Lake Park, this bank of fog hung still in the air just long enough for me to take a photo of it before evaporating away before my eyes.
