Mt. Jefferson Summer Solstice Sunset

Mt. Jefferson Summer Solstice Sunset

Mt. Jefferson in Oregon during the Summer Solstice 

I had taken a few photos of Mt. Jefferson during our off-the-grid summer solstice trip in Oregon, and honestly I was going to pass this moment up to spend it with friends. Until one told me to go for it, that I would regret missing the chance. So thank you to my friend who if they hadn’t of said anything, I wouldn’t have taken the ten minutes it took to set up and take this photo.¬†

It was a gorgeous scene – total quiet and serene. The fires in 2020 took their toll on the area but the fungi and small critters are indications that the area will again be green.

Sunset on Mt. Rainier and the Tacoma Narrows Bridge

Such a gorgeous sunset! Mt. Rainier was my original goal, but the Tacoma Narrows always adds such drama and when you add in the fog… oh yeah. I love driving across the bridge into the void – the other side unknown.

This outing was unexpectedly prolific for me. If you’re interested in reading more you can in my journal here: Finding My Groove Again.

Of course I had to take at least one photo of the many visitors to my bird feeder during the snow and ice storm of 2021. This male dark-eyed junco was the most willing subject. I suspect he was playing lookout.

I still remember the feeling I got when I realized this scene was coming together. The excitement of grabbing my tripod and praying the clouds would stay right where they were. This is one of my favorites for many reasons.
