I don’t usually like morning glories. They send runners under the ground, as well as climbing on and choking out everything around them. I have often marveled that they sell seed packets for them in the stores, wondering who in their right mind would plant them on purpose–since in my yard they are second only to the english ivy in menaces that need to be removed (and only slightly behind dandelions and buttercups in weed warfare).  However, I was out walking last summer and spotted these particular morning glories back-lit with sunlight, making their centers glow in such a way that it was really quite lovely. So for those who really like them, but don’t necessarily want the heartache that goes with having them run wild in your yard…here are some pretty pictures to enjoy.

An elegant  focal black and white macro photo of two white morning glories. Dramatic sunlight shines translucently through these blossoms’ petals making the centers glow with light as well as throwing the rest of the flowers in light and shadow. One flower is enveloped in warm happy sunlight tones, while the other is black and white, causing it to appear cooler, sad, and lonely.

Back in July while out on a walk I spotted these lovely lilies with red petals and yellow centers. These  Hemerocallis fulva longituba are  a hybrid daylily called  “Red Magic” because of its dramatic color combination.  I just recently got to editing out the background,  replacing it with a smooth chocolaty background. The results are striking and elegant.

On several of my walks out and about this summer, I spotted these California poppies growing at the edge of a gravel strewn parking lot. The gravel creates a nice texture in the background of these photos. Introducing a blue, purple, or brown graduated tint during the photo editing process produced a beautiful compliment to the orange color of these wildflowers. I love how it also gives a bit of a moonlit or twilight feel to these images.

During the snow storm around here at the end of February I was able to get a few really good pictures from some of our upper story windows over looking the Columbia River, as well as getting out and about for a hike down into the forest for a photo shoot while the light was just right.

A Masonic lodge and a church steeple topped with a little white cross are seen nestled in the snow-covered forested hills of Rainier, Oregon as brilliant morning light begins to beam through clouds above the mountain ranges looking towards Mount St Helens (which is obscured by the cloud cover).

Columbia river and snow by Dawna Morton
Columbia river and snow by Dawna Morton ~see it framed

A snowy pacific northwest morning looking across the Columbia River from Oregon towards Kelso, Washington. Beautiful snow drifts form between the evergreen trees covering the mountains beyond the bridge leading to I-5.

This photo is so exciting , because with my new canon EOS rebel T2i camera and an old Tamron af 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 tele-macro lens from my father-in-law, I was able to zoom in close enough to see this bridge clearly and use it for a foal point. I was not able to get pictures anywhere close to that far away with my old Olympus camera.

snowy church steeple by Dawna Morton

A snow-covered church steeple, topped with a little white cross, nestles in sunlit, forested hills of Rainier, Oregon as the mountain ranges beyond are still darkened with an early morning twilight.

I love the view of this church steeple from my upper story window. It creates a great focal point for my pictures. Despite this photo’s crisp clean look it took deceptively long to remove the power lines and do some other touch up. I tried out leaving in place the window screens because one of the booklets that came with the camera said when shooting up close they would not show up. Although this worked remarkably better than attempts to do the same with my old camera, it did cause an almost triple exposure look in some areas because of light refraction through the window screen. Luckily I was able to clean that up and edit it out.

Tonight as I was checking on my stats on zazzle I noticed a box at the top of the page labeled “Japan Earthquake Relief,” so I clicked it and found that for every t-shirt on that page zazzle is donating $10 of the proceeds to  charity to help with Earthquake and Tsunami Relief efforts.

Since there was also a link to donate a design to the  cause, I quickly whipped up this cherry blossoms in the sun, red tint hooded sweatshirt with a beautiful red tinted photograph of  some cherry blossoms I took last spring.

I may be exhausted and bleary eyed, and long past due to go to bed, but it seemed like the least I could do.. and at least it is something–albeit small–that I can do to help.

update:
I have also designed this iPhone case on zazzle. All royalties will be donated to relief for Japan until april 12 2011.
