Hi all. I always find the natural world so entertaining and beautiful. Last Wednesday evening she rewarded me with an amazing show.

 







  Standing outside that evening watching the incredible sunset just made me feel happy to be alive.

Here's what my wife and I saw on the way home from the Astoria Sunday Market today. This was between Westport, OR and Clatskanie, OR. It did not touch the ground and went back up into the clouds. Pretty rare scene for this part of the country. I e-mailed a couple photos to a local TV news station and they e-mailed back saying they were going to use my photos on the 10 o'clock newscast.
Rain doesn't get things wet, it makes them grow. So next time you get rained on, remember you're growing, not getting wet.

Nice picture woodbill2, around this part of the country we really don't like seeing those things, they usually do touch ground, for quite a while  ;).  Thanks for sharing.

We get'm here to, but not very often. It's becoming almost an annual event to see where one tore down through the woods. It used to be very rare and in remote places.
Move'n on.

Lately we've been having great sunsets.

 

Hard to get a good shot with a point and shoot.

Amid the usual 'bag of cotton' clouds was this one that reminded me of a Spirograph.

Nice pics everyone!

This might help you out with the under exposed sunset Norm.

The other day I was messing around with a point and shoot trying to see if I could get a sunset picture, I found that if I point the camera at different places in the sky and push the button part way to set the exposure then point it to where I wanted to take the picture I would get different results, by setting the exposure at a darker part of the sky then taking the picture closer to the sun it would come out exposed closer to what I was seeing. Also I was able to shut the flash off on this camera, if unable to turn off the flash you can try covering it with your finger.

Mt. Jefferson and the Three Sisters Mountains some 70 odd miles to the south viewed from Mt. hood through the smokey atmosphere of an ongoing Oregon forest fire on 8/17/12.

Kinda looks like a painting, Ron ... with the peaks rising above the smoke. Your picture reminded me that it was 30 years ago this month that I camped on Mt. Hood. I think it was around 2 years after Mt. St. Helen.

One of our late summer camping trips a few years ago out to the Red Deer River Recreation Area south west of Sundre Alberta. The day and night shots are the same general area and ALL shots taken by one or the other of my 3 kids with various versions of the Canon rebel cameras and lens. There area  few HDR shots that my son had done that I will post as soon as I get him to dump them on my computer from.

They should be. They are often green when our hardwoods have dropped their leaves. ;D

One is looking out my window taken last summer looking to the west. The second was a few years ago in St Martin.  I love looking at that one when its below zero!
