I didn’t get the best pictures on my trip last weekend to Sand Lake.  The weather wasn’t cooporating and the rainy gray days weren’t very conducive to good photography.  I did take a few shots that I really like.  This is the top of the dunes at Sand Lake look towards Cape Kiwanda. This was one of the very few precious moments of sun. Barnacles from a float that we found on the beach. Lots of gray...

The Pretty Ugly Tree

Every year for about two weeks, our house is the prettiest on the block.  That’s due to this beautiful flowering tree.  The blooms are here for such a short time.   We are the only house on the block with a flowering tree.  The neighbors all have these huge gorgeous trees that provides lots of good shade in the summer.  At the end of the two weeks when all of the flowers are gone, this tree turns...

This is a concrete garbage can.  I loved the bright red with the green...

Here are some pictures of flowers in my yard.  These first two are of from my budding lilac tree.  I love that you can still see the dew on the buds.  My camera is a Canon Powershot A630.  It’s amazing what great detail I can get with it’s built in macro lens. Rosemary Another cool feature my camera has is the ability to have one color shine through and the rest of the photograph be black and...

This weekend was sunny and warm.  I got a chance to get out in the yard and do some much needed weeding.  While weeding, I came across this little guy.  It took several attempts to get a good picture of him since he’s only about an inch long.  I cropped these two pictures so I could get much better detail of the...
