Jewell to Astoria

Cruising through Jewell and onto Astoria- I love that ride.  One of these days I have to stop at the waterfalls between the two.

Back to sharing photos

Last Monday I drove out to see the elk via Vernonia, Mist, Jewell and then onto Astoria.  I have not even looked at or thought about photos since the election results the next day.  Just about every single person I know is devastated.  Those that are not devastated- we don't want to talk to.  YET.  Luckily, I don't know too many of them.  Anyway, here's to art and photography and creativity!!  Keep on keeping on,,, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. #nastywomengetshitdonepdx

Ye olde Nelson house

I have seen tons of photos of this house over the years- now I have a ton of my very own.

Tree glee continues

I haven't shot with Edge 80 in a while... dusted her off for a few shots at Boardman Tree Farm

Slice of Boardman

My trick when I am switching between optics and lenses so quickly and often on a shoot like this?  I take a shot of the ground in between.  You're welcome.

Boardman....more plastic optic

Boardman Tree Farm

I have seen tons of photos from Boardman lately and it's a place I have always wanted to go.  I have driven by it on a couple of trips but never stopped.  Its days as a tree farm are numbered and there are less trees there than years ago.  I stopped at 4 separate forests- so cool!  I probably took 250 photos total- these are all taken with Lensbaby Plastic Optic- one of my all time faves.

Ye olde house out by Condon

Not much has changed since I was there 18 months ago

"You sure do love your trees."

Quote from Ciyanna when I took her to Columbia Children's Arboretum many autumns ago.

2 trees

These 2 gave a particularly spectacular performance
