Warm Skies over Timothy Lake

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

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.
