Haystack Rock(s)

A moody pair of shots from north of Pacific City. Great clouds and the high winds really kicked up the foam!

Black as Snow

I found *THIS* covering my trees when I came home the other night. :-) Snow is a great thing! We see little of it and I can not get enough.

Snow Wolves

Not really. Just our (light) golden retrievers out for a snow romp.

Drove up to the snow today

A bonus shot today.

(No, this is NOT B&W. There are colors there......)

Snow Plow

Update: The Back Story
The road grader was in a night parade in Salem and was on display for a "Parade Glow" the next night. It just happened to snow a couple inches while we were there and I grabbed this shot. There are a couple more of the snow, etc on my monochrome blog,

On the Prowel

Taken at the Oregon Marine Aquarium, Newport, Oregon. I was in the walk through tube in the shark tank. I took a lot of shots to get this one and it is still not the best. It was very cool how the sharks were silhouetted against the light above.

One More Mushroom

I hope the fungus fetish hasn't fouled your fascination. :-) This is an interesting (to me) study of light. I had the sunrise on the left, a little fill from my camera square on and a large back fill on the lower right. I like the effect.

When Mushrooms Mature

The last of these huge beauties. The largest of these stands about ten inches tall and eight inches in diameter.

I'll never forget

I had been waiting nearly a week for this mushroom to pop out of the ground. Here is is! I made this capture of it and wanted to go back at night with lights to set a mood. About an hour after this was taken it was destroyed by a couple of kids. :-( I had never seen this type of mushroom before so was heart broke, but found more later and I'll post soon. They are a beautiful flower on their own.

On a side note, these are not only pretty but toxic and use as an hallucinogen. They used to feed them to Reindeer to make them "fly" (jump really high).
