Last week I used this photo to make some new products on zazzle. This is one of my favorite photos –I love how as the early morning sun bursts through the trees, illuminating the forest with its heavenly glow, silhouettes of branches and leaves create a semblance of a stained glass window. It also reminded me this last week a bit of the Christmas star, so I thought it would make a nice photo card for Christmas.

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.

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.

A cascade of golden maple leaves shines luminously in the autumn sun rays around the highlighted mossy silhouette of a tree trunk beside the forest ferns in beautiful Rainier, Oregon.

A ring of maple leaves shines in the autumn sun like a golden crown suspended in mid air.

Sun rays stream through the trees as the sky is seen through a lacework of autumn foliage in the forest canopy.

light in my Forest#1As a side hobby to my artwork, I take lots of photos so I can have good reference pictures for later.

light in my Forest#4 These are a series of photos of the light in my forest. We live on almost half an acre with a lovely spot of forested ravine which leads down to a creek. I love the different effects of the light through out the day. Whenever I look out the window and see how beautifully the light strikes the trees deep in the woods, I want to grab my camera and run. Once in light in my Forest#8a while I make it out there before the light changes and manage to snap some pictures. I took most of these in October 2007. I love the one with the clump of yellow leaves all by itself in the photo at the lower left.

light in my Forest#3One of the things I wish I had pictures of is the view from my back deck down into the forest, when the”helicopters” from all the maple trees are falling. The first autumn we lived in this house the wind was blowing and it was a truly blustery day. With the leaves spinning in their downwardly spiraling dance and the helicopters whirling in the wind it was an almost magical experience. It reminded me of light in my Forest#9dancing wood nymphs joyfully flitting about on the wind in a symphony of chaotic motion. I plan on doing a painting of that one someday (I just have too many other projects in the works right now to get going on that one yet). A photo would not do it justice, and A video camera is not something I own. It is definitely a sight worth sitting and watching for awhile and I look forward to it each fall.

Be sure to check out my photo gallery frequently for new photos. Prints will be available at zazzle.com
