Entrance to The Shire
Found My Path
Warm & Fuzzy
Sunrise over Foxtails grass.
The setting sun lights up a field of Sunflowers in Northern California.
Well I didn't get a chance to chase fireworks for the 4th, but I did get some nice burning sky colors streaking across the sky. This was taken a few weeks back when I made the trip to Yolo county for some sunflowers.
Lupines And Rhinestones
The vast lush and accessible wilderness of Oregon is amazing. My #Escaype buddies took me on the Canyon Creek Meadows hike. Our goal was to see wild flowers and 3 Fingered Jack. At the trail head parking it started to rain. We waited in the car for about 30-40 mins and when it stopped we made a decision to hike in. There were fellow hikers hiking out soaking wet but we forged forward. About half way into the hike, it started to rain and fog crept in. When we got to close to the upper meadow portion, I saw 3 fingered jack for maybe a few minutes before it was blanketed by fog. I would never see the pinnacles again, but I did see the base. The fog moved in and out like the rain would stop and pour. I was determined to get at least one photo. When the rain subsided enough (to smaller sprinkles) and the fog revealed something of a background, I quickly setup. The rain littered the flora and it looked like immaculate single drops. Very much like Rhinestones. Oh yeah, lupines and red flowers every where as well :).
Trees & Flowers
“The planting of a tree, especially one of the long-living hardwood trees, is a gift which you can make to posterity at almost no cost and with almost no trouble, and if the tree takes root it will far outlive the visible effect of any of your other actions, good or evil.”
