Ephemera

Sunny weather in Oregon
snowflakes on a campfire
Clouds hurrying on the blue
fluffy shapes we admire
Trees that fall beyond the edge
with roots that hug unstable soil
Soft earth that runs and slips

Interface

I’ve always loved the stormy sea; those untamed waves crashing on rugged shores beneath my feet.  “Headlands” is the word; a colorful but descriptive term.

Feel the Gs

Hood from Trillium

Mt. Hood over (snow-covered) Trillium Lake. This is a blend of three images using the “HDR” (High Dynamic Range) tool. It really helps bring out some welcome detail on an otherwise empty white expanse and in the dark areas of the image.
