Crescendo

October isn’t really known for its beautiful days on the beach in Oregon. Usually it brings wind and cold rain with many clouds. But there it is. An October sunset on the Pacific coast. God’s Crescendo to His day. All we need is to take time to notice and watch for these miracles. He makes these masterpieces for us, because He loves us. Reminders that He is God and we are cherished.

Looking Ahead

I made a calendar for the 2022! I usually make two, one landscape and one of the little things I love. This year has been hectic and so far I have only gotten the small one completed. This is and 8×11″, it is $18 plus shipping, usually no more than $6. I can use PayPal, Venmo or if in person cash.

Contact me if you want a copy of one! I am just happy to share.

Big Wishes

A close up of the biggest wishes I’ve seen yet. The whole tuft covered my palm. I know I have some big wishes. Some of them too big to even talk about because, in my head, I know they will never happen. I focus my attention on what I have in the present and staying content in it. But then again, who am I to put limits on God Almighty. He doesn’t fit in a box. My imagination is too small for Him. Give those wishes to God and wait to see what might happen. Hope.

Black and White Wizard

Black and white photography. I love it, in fact most of the photos I keep on my walls are black and white. Yet I rarely edit them that way. I can’t seem to let go of the bright blues, deep greens and every other shade of color imaginable. So here we go, Wizard Island with a very interesting old snag at Crater Lake without color. I like it!

Splashing By…

We had such a beautiful trip this summer. This is a river by a little, hidden hot spring resort. It was a hot day, and even hotter by the boiling springs. But by the river it was perfect. The water was absolutely freezing, yet the air was fresh and just the right temperature. The sound of that river rolling over the rocks and splashing through its bed was delightful, especially after a long car ride. This is the scene I captured for you hoping you could stay a moment and imagine being there with us. We live in such a beautiful part of the world, the Great Northwest.

The Wonders of this World

I am so thrilled to see our Swallowtails every spring. I am also fairly predictable by now I suppose. I can’t help it. I find such miracles in our daily lives. I want to share them with you too. The fingerprints of God right here. Why would God make a bug that starts out as a little caterpillar, then curl up in a “sleeping pod” they make all by themselves, then transform into a beautiful, fluttering insect? I think it is because He knew that we would love such a whimsical creature. He loves us so very much.
