Rock Garden at Lewis & Clark College

28 Jun

Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon is a campus full of beauty, from the reflection pool with a view of Mt. Hood, to old stone carriage paths, and the beautiful manor house. Recently I was visiting my old alma mater while helping a friend photograph an engagement session and noticed they revamped an area with a beautiful rock garden. I of course had to return and photograph the flowers there.

Photography of Mount Rainier Travel

15 Oct

This last July I was able to travel with my immediate and some of my extended family up north of Vancouver, Washington to Mount Rainier National Park to go on a summer camping vacation. We are able to take a small family trip like this almost every summer. We usually end up camping for half a week to a week and go on hikes, play in streams, and otherwise hang out with nature, it is a great way to get to know the state and national parks in our area.

This year I really wanted to venture out to a national park, since the last one I went to was in Maine in 2013 during the government shutdown and so we did not even get to camp there, just explore (which was beautiful too, there is a great stone beach with smooth rocks tumbled naturally from the ocean waves). This year we chose to head north of Portland, Oregon to Mount Rainier which is also just south of Seattle, Washington.

There were gorgeous hikes, the ranger at White River campsite was really helpful, and great with the kids, plus there are kids programs at the main visitors centers where the kids can earn a junior ranger badge by learning about the park and the animals that live in it. Here are a few of my favorite views from the stay and my happy place. 🙂

Weekly Photography Challenge: Orange

9 Mar

Macro photography of crocus

Macrophotography of plum blossom

The photography challenge that WordPress chose this week was orange. I decided on using these two photographs that I think have orange as a nice bright wow point. While orange is not the main focus of the photograph in either case, I think the orange creates a lot of interest.

I took both of these photographs using my macro filters. I have really been enjoying the flowers and sunshine that the Portland, Oregon and SW Washington area has been experiencing. Hopefully I will get to keep getting outside with my camera. 🙂
