One of the places locally we like to go for family outings is during the summer is the pond at the now defunct Trojan Nuclear facility. There are lots of walking paths, wildlife, picnic tables, restrooms, fishing and a little picturesque bridge. One day last July We managed to get there pretty early in the day, and the light shining through the trees and on the water was just beautiful.

Early Morning sun Shines through the forest canopy at Trojan pond, near Goble, Oregon—creating a lovely ray of lens flare orbs as it sparkles on the rippling pond water and making grasses and bugs alike glow tranquilly.

Love the colorful refraction in the lens flare in this photo.

One of the birds I like to keep an eye out for while I am there are Great Blue Herons. During our walk that morning I was able to successfully stalk and photograph one.

Recently, when it was my turn to drive my son to early morning seminary, I looked out the  window and saw this brilliant sunrise. Since he wasn’t quite ready yet I nabbed my camera and dashed to the window and the back porch to snap a few pictures before it was time to head out the door.

The sun shines radiantly golden as it begins to rise over the crest of the mountains beyond the banks of the Columbia River near Kelso and Longview, Washington. The Pacific Northwest clouds are dark and brooding in the glowing orange sky while the river is still unseen and shrouded in darkness.

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.

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.

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.

Here is the last installment of apple blossom pictures I took this spring. For some reason these first two seem to have a bit of an oriental flair, but maybe that’s just me. It’s just something about the foremost of the apple blossoms–perhaps the shape in combination with the glowing light.

Glowing translucently in the sun, white apple blossoms stretch upwards towards the sky in front of a dark forest background. On either side of the sprig of blossoms, pale green leaves with golden veins, spread transparent in the sun, tilting like the gossamer wings of a bird circling majestically in the warm spring air.

Here are some more pictures I took back in April of the apple blossoms on our trees. I love the effects I was able to create using some of the tools in picassa. The abstract shapes of the light in the forest in behind this sprig of flowers helped make these truly spectacular. I hope you all enjoy these too:

A pink tint adds a dramatic flair to this elegant photo of white apple blossoms, making the light in the dark forest background appear like a splash of luminescent water in mid-air, or like firelight dancing on the crystal inside a geode.

I like to use the graduated tint feature to add tints to just part of a photo– rather than just sticking to using it solely for skies.

All through April I was keeping an eye on the budding apple trees in the back yard, waiting for them to blossom. Then the day came when they were in bloom and the sun was out in all its spring glory.  Here are the pictures, after having some fun tweaking them on the computer:

Bright, cheerful apple blossoms in the foreground of this photo are juxtaposed against an impressionistic dark, moody background.

I love the dreamy, moody, almost surreal, impressionistic feel achieved in this by using a graduated tint as well as several other editing tools

The sepia tones in this picture of bright spring sun shining though the branches of a cherry tree as a bit of lens flare steaks across the elegantly translucent white cherry blossoms causes the sky to have a bit of a beautiful sunlit fog appearance.Back in April when I was headed in the back yard to do some chores done, I noticed how beautifully the sunlight was shining the cherry blossoms and ran in for my camera. I ended up grabbing a branch and pulling it down closer to the camera for at least one of these shots.

Here is the third installment of red crab apple blossom photos I took at my friend R. T.’s house. …

Recently my friend R. T. invited my family over to dinner and Family Home Evening at her house. The sun was shining particularly bright that day, and at just the right angle to draw my attention to the beautiful red flowers on the tree right outside her dining room window. I’m not sure how I managed to miss it before since I have been there many times during the past 5 years that I’ve known her. Since she graciously gave me permission to come back another time to photograph them, I came back a few days later while out on a walk in the spring sunshine with my camera.

Based on the small amount of research I did on the internet I think it is an ornamental crab apple tree hybrid, perhaps a Malus ‘Radiant’ crab apple , which is a bit surprising because of the size of the tree. It’s about as tall as the house and pretty thick around. I got these shots from several windows which are a good 10 ft above the ground at least. Thankfully there is a zoom lens on my camera so I wasn’t tempted to try climbing a ladder to get these. 😉 And a BIG thank you to Mrs. R. T. for the privilege of photographing the view from her windows 😀
