Submarine

1-9-20 Back in March of 2019, I visited Portland, OR and was able to get several photographs in the city.  Especially interesting to me was the Willamette River which runs through Portland and the numerous bridges which cross over the river.  For reference, check out my blog post of “Three Bridges” dated 3-3-19. Even though…

Harbor

12-30-19 An item on my bucket list was to photograph a harbor full of boats.  Of course, I want to accomplish this at night.  Considering I live about 2-3 hours from the closest ocean port, I can’t just run down there and try to get a nice shot at night with the right weather.  As…

Lithia Park

10-20-19 Lithia Park is in Ashland, Oregon and very well known for its beauty (at least in the area).  It is a relatively large park for a non-metropolitan community and is always well maintained.  One of the things it is especially known for is its fall colors. Every year during the fall, numerous photographers flock…

Lava Beds Sunset

August 6, 2019 I enjoy visiting the National Park sites near my home.  Even though the closest ones are all about 2+ hours away, I still enjoy visiting them.  I have been to Lava Beds National Monument several times, all during the day.  It has some barren scenery and I have thought and tried to…

Three Bridges

3-3-19 I know I haven’t posted for a while, but unfortunately, I had a little injury that has kept my attention.  This photo I took before the all of that but I will write about it now. My son-in-law had a work assignment in Portland and asked if I would give him a ride up…
