Swollen Sandy River

I cannot believe it is already November. Only two more months of the year left! Yikes!

The nonstop rainfall has made the rivers of the area high and fast. This is the Sandy River. You can see in the foreground, parts of the beach that is normally showing are sticking up out of the water a bit, and beyond the first layer of trees, a branch of water is flowing through what is normally dry land. Above the sky is thick with rainclouds, which are also hanging low into the trees.

The World In A Raindrop

Happy Halloween!! I am hoping the rain subsides a bit today so that the kids can all have a fun time trick or treating tonight!

Speaking of rain, it rained non-stop all last weekend. As a true Oregonian, however, I did not let this deter me from getting out and getting some photography time in. This photo was one of my favorites that I captured.

PS - my words and photos were featured on the Travel Oregon website today!

One of my favorite things about autumn is the mushrooms! I love the variety that comes up with the season. They are one of my very favorite things to photograph. I purchased a new macro lens on eBay and have not received it yet, but I will be sure to go out mushroom hunting when I finally get it in the mail!
