Sun Peeks Through The Trees at River View Cemetery

We were leaving River View Cemetery on a soggy grey Oregon autumn day when the skies opened up for just about 5 minutes and we enjoyed some golden sunshine peeking through the trees. I snapped this photo and then, as quickly as it began, it was over.

Japanese Maple Trees in Autumn

This photo, taken at Portlands River View Cemetery, was something we just came across. This group of about 5 japanese maples stood only a few yards from the huge Henry Weinhard family plot. I squatted down underneath the tree that had the most color change showing and took this photo, which makes the short bushes appear much bigger than they actually are.

Portland's River View Cemetery in Autumn

Sitting on 350 acres above the Willamette River, appropriately named River View Cemetery was founded in 1882 and is the final resting place for many famous Portland area citizens and their families. This past Sunday I took advantage of a brief break in the rain and headed up to explore the grounds. I love visiting cemeteries. The history, families, and stories are so interesting to me.

A Week of Cemetery Photos

I am posting a photo a day for the next few days from my visit to River View Cemetery in Portland this past weekend. I thought the location was appropriate because Halloween is upon us! This coming Saturday is 'All Hallows Eve', and in celebration of my favorite time of year, I hope you will enjoy the spooky autumn captures!
