Very early morning on a Northbound Train…..

Weekly Photo Challenge:  Early Bird

Window Stills

Posted on

I thought it would be interesting to take a series of photos from the window in my hotel. It is surprising to look at the same thing every day yet not really see the subtle differences.

Man Made Lines

Posted on

I looked up to see the wondrous swirling clouds that are somewhere between rain and sun. In the bright blue opening I saw two man made lines in stark contrast to the fluffy nature of the clouds.

After the Storm (or Before the Next?)

I took a walk today in lovely weather – sunny and warm.  What a welcome feeling after the snow, ice, rain, then wind that Portland experienced in the last week.  A few shots that I captured during my walk…

Sunny Day

Saw the sun pushing through the clouds today on my walk and snapped this photo. Just felt uplifting.

Above the Clouds

As I looked out the window during my flight from Baltimore to Kansas City, I noticed the beauty of the cloudscapes below. As we moved along, the shapes changed and I began to see images of snow capped mountains, rounded desert hills, and what I imagine Antarctica to look like. Here are a few of my favorites.

Cloud City

When people think of Portland, they think rain.  But in actuality it should be clouds.  We have many cloudy days – some with rain and some without.  Over the course of the day, you can see the beautiful clouds change and morph.  Don’t get me wrong, all of that cloudiness can get you down.  But on a day like today, the right mixture of brightness and clouds and make you look up and appreciate nature’s beauty.  Some of my favorites:
