Sunny Day Dandelions

This picture just screams "sunny" to me. The newly bloomed flower stretching for the sunlight, the bright yellow. Hurray for spring to come!

Molalla River

I was walking along the Molalla River outside of Camas Oregon at the golden hour and caught the sun lighting up these bare winter trees and reflecting in the still waters.

Upper Oneonta Falls

I have a pretty lengthy bucket list of places in Oregon (and beyond) that I want to visit in the very near future with my camera. One at the top of the list is the famous Oneonta Gorge. I have never hiked through the gorge, but hope to this summer. The closest I could get at this time of year is behind the gorge, where you can find this watery heaven, Upper Oneonta Falls.

Hikers Heaven

I am very very lucky to live where I do. On any given weekend I can pack up my son, his backpack carrier, meet up with hiking buddies and trek out into the woods to discover the beauty that our area provides. This is a simple trail, but surrounded by fern covered ground and moss covered rocks and trees, in itself is a stunning sight.

Skeletons of Winter

While signs of spring are popping up all around, the leftover skeletons of fall and winter are still very prominent anywhere you go. These beaten up remains of a wild carrot plant are still standing, despite the rains and winds of winter. Soon the field it is in will be overtaken with new growth.
