Battery Mishler Gun Emplacement exit, ladders by Dawna Morton

Last spring I got to go on one of the coolest field trips ever with my son. He was enrolled in an online school, Oregon Connections Academy, at the time. We went on an underground tour of battery Mishler at old Fort Stevens. It was like taking a step backward in time right into history. Even though Battery Mishler was burned in a fire started by some vagrants several decades ago, there were still lots of cool things to see. My son had a blast shining his flashlight in every nook and cranny, and I had fun trying out the low light setting on my camera while we listened to our guide explain all the Civil War, World War I, and World War II history involved in what we were seeing. It was really neat, and I would highly advise going if you ever get the chance. Although it is not generally open to the public (for safety reasons they don’t leave it unlocked), You can call in advance and set up a special appointment with a tour guide if you are interested. I would recommend wearing a hat since it is drippy in there. It is also probably good to know that there are stairs, so it isn’t exactly stroller friendly. (There was a student in a wheelchair, and they were able to carry him up and then carry up the chair, so it isn’t impossible–just not easy. There were two sets of stairs if I recall correctly.)

The photographs really turned out cool and unique looking. The light was really tricky with everyone waving flashlights around, and I didn’t have much time to stop for photos at any one location –since I didn’t want to get lost alone in the dark. A tripod would have been nice to have since the slower shutter speed accentuated any movement at all, but I would not have had time to set it up and use it each time we stopped –our guide kept a pretty good pace. A lot of time  even though the camera was still, people and their flashlights and glow sticks were moving, causing a kind of time-lapse photography effect with the longer exposure time on the low light/night photography setting. It also caused the light to have a kind of golden glow to it which I like. In a lot of the pictures my son was shining the light at things so we could actually see what I was photographing. It was really dark in there. Even though there are some overhead lights, they are few and far between, and not very bright. Using the flashlight In conjunction with the low light setting really caused some dramatic lighting effects (which I enhanced later with some editing of course).

Because of time constraints I’m not going to be able post all of the photos here, but you can peruse them in my galleries at Redbubble and Imagekind (and coming soon on Zazzle and Fineartamerica). There were also some photos I took of the other batteries and scenery around Fort Stevens before it started pouring down rain.

Next we made a stop at the Astoria column after a break for lunch. I actually let my son borrow my camera for once (with strict instructions not to break it, drop it, etc etc) and let him do the climb by himself with the other students and teachers since I had a wee one asleep in the car by then. He took some great photos–and I’m not saying that just cause I’m his mom. I had some fun editing them, with his permission. He was pretty proud that I liked them enough to post them for sale. They can also be viewed at Redbubble and Imagekind, and will be on Zazzle and Fineartamerica sometime soon.

Two Augusts ago I made my first ever trip up to Mount St. Helens with my family. Despite having lived in the region all my life, I had never been before. It was definitely worth the trip.

Once we reached Johnston’s Ridge, there were some breathtaking views of the mountain as well as a nice visitors center with a movie about the eruption and tons of activities for the kids. There is a day use fee for being there though, so If you go up be prepared to fork out some money.

We only hiked up to the top of the first little viewing area and back, but it looks like it would have been fun to make a day of it and hike the whole path if we’d had more time and more energy that day. The paths  were paved  and even stroller  friendly, albeit a bit steep. Hiking along the ridge top allowed for some stunning views of the local wildflowers against the blue sky.

Last August I made my first ever trip up to Mount St. Helens with my family. Despite having lived in the region all my life, I had never been before. Along the way, we stopped at Fire Mountain Grill at Hoffstadt Bluffs for lunch. There are some great views of the Toutle River Valley from the back deck, including the desolate areas of ash and destruction which still surround the river.

I’m not 100% sure which lake this is, but I think based on looking at maps that it is either Coldwater Lake or Clearwater Lake.

As seen from Johnston’s Ridge, near Mount Saint Helens, a hiking path climbs towards either Coldwater Lake or Clearwater Lake through mountains still recovering from the volcano’s destruction.

We only hiked up to the top of the first little viewing area and back, but it looks like it would have been fun to make a day of it and hike the whole path if we’d had more time and more energy that day. The paths  were paved  and even stroller  friendly, albeit a bit steep.

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.

On the last evening before the beginning of the school year I took the kids to the local park down by the Columbia River for one last evening of carefree fun and frolicking. We stayed so late we were there to enjoy the sunset, and the sky was lit up a pretty shade of pink behind the Lewis and Clark Bridge. As I walked closer to the river to get some good pictures of the sunset, I noticed these little clumps of either light pink or white wildflowers growing in the sand near the banks. It was difficult to get a good  picture of them in the twilight, but these two turned out pretty well.

One night when I was busy making dinner, my kids insisted I come take pictures of this beautiful sunset. After they had raved awhile and tugged me over to the window I snapped this without removing the window screen, then realizing it really was quite a pretty sunset I took several others from the front porch and an upstairs window. This is the only one that turned out well, so I am glad the kids got my attention when they did.

It was not until I was editing this later that I realized I had actually captured a picture of the earth’s shadow. There is a pretty cool group on Redbubble.com all about atmospheric optics If you are interested in learning more about it as well as seeing some pretty awesome photographs.

Almost unseen in the purple twilight the Colombia River flows past the lights along the waterfront of Longview, Washington. A barge full of cargo travels silently towards the Pacific Ocean as the cross hatch pattern of a window screen creates the effect like a scene reflected on the windows of a sky scraper.

I am still catching up posting all the pictures I took back in May. These were from a morning when I was up making bread before school. The Sunrise sure was pretty that morning. Hope you enjoy them 🙂

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 clouds sweep across the like impressionistic brush strokes as the river flows quietly subdues between the dark silhouettes of the Oregon and Washington shores.

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.
