I am blessed to live less than 30 minutes from the Columbia River Gorge. This morning I took a ride out to the gorge hoping to get some shots of the fog before it burned off. Unfortunately, the fog lifted quickly, but I still had a wonderful time hiking and photographing some of the waterfalls. I spent quite a bit of my time at Latourell Falls, the first one I came upon.

The weather here has been just crappy lately so my camera hasn’t been seeing much action. For this post I went looking through some older photos in search of something to remind me that it isn’t always like this. I took this on the central Oregon coast. Now this is why I live here!
I love this tree. It lives in Crystal Springs Rhododendrum Park in Portland. I always have to take a few photos of it when I visit that park. Here’s a completely different view of it that I took almost a year ago.
I’ve made a dangerous new discovery. I won a raffle last week and the prize was a freshly made pie from Random Order, a coffeehouse within walking distance of my house. They bake 22 different kinds of pie. I chose this chocolate cream pie that is made with 3 different kinds of chocolate and fresh whipped cream. Wow! It’s incredible! It tastes amazing – rich, light and creamy with a yummy, flaky crust. Oh man, I’m in trouble.
This is another photo from my class field trip. I’ve tried to get a good shot of this scene numerous times over the years, but it never came out the way I saw it. This time I feel like I nailed it. I don’t mean that it’s a perfect shot, but that I was able to make the camera see what I saw. That was pretty satisfying! I’m quite happy with this photo. Oh, this is the Portland skyline from the east bank of the Willamette River.
