It was on a morning back in may when I was up early that I took these beautiful pictures from my window. I love having a view of the Columbia River from my house. Hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Sunrise Over the Columbia River #11 by Dawna Morton

Sunrise Over the Columbia River #11 by Dawna Morton see it framed

As seen from Rainier, Oregon, the banks of the Columbia River near Longview and Kelso, Washington are obscured in fog. A soft glowing light filters down from the clouds on this tranquil Pacific Northwest morning and shimmers on the river as it flows between the evergreen forests, over a sandbar, and towards the Pacific Ocean.

Yesterday I created a series of products on Zazzle using my photo, Sunrise Over the Columbia River #9…

Layers of lavender purple and pink clouds glow in the dawn light as the sun rises over the Columbia River in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. A white Masonic Lodge nestles next to a church among the shadowy trees of the Rainier, Oregon forest as the Columbia river flows past the city lights of Kelso and Longview, Washington twinkling against the dark backdrop of the mountains ranges beyond.

There is  matching postage as well as matching stickers for sale for that extra special touch to you personal correspondence.

I think it was back in October or early November when I was in the middle of getting the kids ready for school I noticed how beautiful the sunrise was.  I managed to run for my camera and hop out to the back deck and get  some gorgeous photos during all the early morning rush.

A Masonic lodge is nestled in the predawn twilight of the Rainier, Oregon forest as the clouds in the sky above change to hues or coral, pink, lavender, and purple in the light of the rising sun. Beyond the unseen Columbia River the somber pacific northwest mountain ranges surround Longview and Kelso, Washington.

This week I created a series of products on zazzle Using my painting, Oakridge Reservoir #3

Watercolor painting on Fabriano Uno 300 lb Soft Press 100% cotton paper, 7 1/2″x 11″, 2001. Sunrise over Oakridge Reservoir, on a tranquil Oregon morning. Smooth as glass, the water mirrors calm reflections of driftwood and a fishing boat. Peace and solitude as the day breaks over the cool blue mountains. This is one of a series of 4 watercolor paintings I did of Oakridge Reservoir quite a number of years ago. We went camping in Oakridge during august one year for vacation, and while we were there I took some lovely reference photos of the reservoir early in the morning. It’s a really lovely place, not far from Springfield and Eugene, Oregon–it’s very family friendly with lots of outdoor recreational activities. Painted on a very smooth sample of Fabriano Uno 300 lb Soft Press 100% cotton paper, this early morning scene inspires reflection and peacefulness as well as a sense of the majesty and grandeur of nature and God’s creations. The waters of the reservoir are smooth as glass as they reflect the logs and driftwood within the reflections of the shadowy mountains. An evergreen branch seems to point past the small fishing boat moored alone at the dock towards the pale yellow dawn light filling the sky and creeping across the mountains while three pale gray clouds hover in the distance.

This morning as I was dropping  kids off at school late, I saw a sight so beautiful it made me feel like kicking myself for not having my camera. Luckily I DID have my cell phone on me; so, I was at least able to get some pictures. These are so beautiful. I wish I’d had my good camera on me to get a higher resolution since the difference between 2 megapixel and 3 is NOT small.

Misty Morning Sun #1

Misty Morning Sun #1

The light layer of fog and clouds makes the trees fade away to nothing in the distance and creates a golden glow around the sun in the sky.

Misty Morning Sun #2

Misty Morning Sun #2

Sunlight shimmers on the silvery gray mist above the trees.

Misty Morning Sun #3

Misty Morning Sun #3

Like yin and yang the shadowy dark forest creates opposition to the bright glowing sunrise in the sky.  In this last picture the barely visible traces of the modern world are juxtaposed against the beauty of nature. These are available for sale as greeting cards, post cards, and small prints at Zazzle (please ignore the “Z” watermark here, it will NOT be on the actual prints–it’s embedded in the link by Zazzle to deter theft) All Rights Reserved. DO NOT COPY IN ANY FORM. You are of course welcome to share a link to this with anyone 😉

While I was designing this postcard I realized that the zoom feature on my blackberry phone is not a true zoom. It essentially just crops the image, giving you the illusion of zooming in when you look at it on your phone, but in reality giving you a smaller image in pixels. 😦

I do like how this post card turned out though. The golden colored background complements the glowing haze surrounding the sun in my photo, and I was able to create a kind of poetic frame around it: Beautiful rainy, misty, mossy, dank, damp, wet. drip drop drizzle gray, cloudy, overcast with chance of sun, lush verdant green rainforest can you see the forest for the trees in the middle of the rain? Oregon.
