One of the projects I have been working on over the past week is to create a series of products on Zazzle using a picture I took a few months ago from one of our windows. Looking from Rainier, Oregon across the Columbia river towards Washington is a spectacular view of bright sunlight shining on a layer of dark, moody clouds above a layer of golden morning sky. Beyond the silhouettes of evergreens and small town buildings, the Columbia river shimmers with an amber glow of reflected sunrise as the far bank is obscured in a dark morning mist…

Last week I created a series of new product on zazzle using another photo from one of my hikes in the snow last winter. In this photo the pale blue winter sky is visible through the forest canopy, as the sun’s rays stream through the evergreens. Glistening drops of melting snow fall through the air toward the ferny forest floor covered in a light dusting of snow.

One of the things I have been working on this week is a series of product featuring my photo, Forest Sun Rays in the Snow #24, that I took while on a hike in the woods near my home last winter. A ray of sunlight shines down through the snow-covered forest, creating a bright icy lacework of tree branches. Four trees surround a small clearing in the woods like a bier, as logs blanketed in snow on the sloping forest floor resemble a skeleton, below icy tree limbs forming a ghostly apparition of a horses face like a trusty steed standing guard.

Last week I used another one of  the photos I took last winter to create some more products on zazzle:  Shining brightly in the pale crystal blue morning sky the sun creates an array of light orbs hanging in the air like a chandelier above the snow-covered forest near Fox Creek, Rainier, Oregon. Beyond the wintry snow-covered ferns and fallen branches, Fox Creek meanders unseen through the trees on its way towards the Columbia River.

Last week I used a close up photo of snow sparkling in the morning sun on a fallen log  last winter in the forest of Rainier, Oregon to make some new items for sale on Zazzle.com . A knobby twig is poised near the edge of the photo like a gnarly finger or pen preparing to inscribe a message.

Recently I created a series of products for sale on zazzle.com using a fantastic photo I took last winter, forest “troll” in the snow #2.   Like something out of a fantasy novel, this tree stump resembles a mythological woodland creature such as a troll, ogre, or gnome guarding the forest. Branches dangle overhead shining in the sun like a chandelier from a castle ceiling, and ferns cascade downward illuminated by the winter sun as the snow casts a light carpet across the forest floor.

Although this photo is available on many different styles of mugs, I particularly like it on this tall transparent frosty glass mug because it really brings out the sparkle of the lighting on the snow in the photo.

Sunrise over the Columbia River #1 by Dawna Morton

Sunrise over the Columbia River #1 by Dawna Morton

Looking from Rainier, Oregon across the Columbia river towards Washington is a spectacular view of bright sunlight shining on a layer of dark, moody clouds above a layer of golden morning sky. Beyond the silhouettes of evergreens and small town buildings, the Columbia river shimmers with an amber glow of reflected sunrise as the far bank is obscured in a dark morning mist.

Sunrise over the Columbia River #2 by Dawna Morton

Nestled among the forest silhouettes, the masonic lodge and a church steeple stand in subdued silence as the golden sunrise lights up the cloudy Oregon sky above the Columbia river.

Sunrise Over the Columbia River #3 by Dawna Morton

Brilliantly the sun shines from behind darkened clouds in an early morning sky as it rises over the Columbia River. The Masonic Lodge and a church steeple nestle sleepily among the Oregon forest in Rainier, as the river flows shining in the golden sunlight toward the pacific ocean, and the opposite shore of Kelso and Longview, Washington is obscured in a hazy mist.

Sunrise Over the Columbia River #4 by Dawna Morton

The Columbia River shines radiantly in the sunrise as it flows tranquilly towards the pacific ocean bordered by dark silhouettes of evergreen trees standing like sentinels on the Oregon shore and mist shrouded mountains beyond in Washington.

Sunrise Over the Columbia River #5 by Dawna Morton

As the sun rises over the Columbia river, a masonic lodge and church steeple rise above the forest of the surrounding hills in Rainier, Oregon. Silvery gray and luminescent white in the early morning light, the clouds blanket the pacific northwest sky.

Tags: , , ,

The other morning when the sun was shining blindingly through the shades as the sun rose, I peeked out the window at the sunrise and ran for my camera, taking these photos right through the window screen. This left a cross hatch pattern on the photos, and in retrospect I think it would have been better to remove the screen first because it was not possible to edit it out. In a few of them it gives the slight impression of rain though and I like that. I did have to edit out some large and rather unsightly power lines. when my pc crashed recently I was not able to reinstall one of the photo editing programs I used to use (photoimpression5) because the disk had warped. Although I use picassa  for such features at their retouch and some of the effects such as sharpen and soft focus, it does not have a “smudge” feature–which is one of the things I usually used photoimpression5 for. Luckily on Zazzle’s blog they had recently done an article on inexpensive, or free,  alternatives to Adobe’s Photoshop–which I don’t have because it is prohibitively expensive at the moment.  One of the program’s they recommended was Paint.net, so I decided to give it a try. At first I was disappointed because I did not see a smudge feature, but then noticed there are a variety of patches that can be added. One of them included a smudge feature and so far I am very happy with it. On areas like the clouds, the  retouch feature on picassa is pretty good at removing the power lines, but at the edges or near the trees and buildings smudge is essential to remove the dark color of the power lines before using  retouch to smooth things out and in some cases to replace the crosshatch pattern of the screen to make it match the rest of the photo. Then in some of them I liked the soft focus effect to soften out the screen pattern a bit. All in all they are lovely photos.

The morning sun sparkles like a faceted gem through a canopy silhouettes created by moss-covered tree branches. Refracted by the forest canopy, the light creates a subdued rainbow within the dark Oregon forest.
