One October morning there was a lovely sunrise as fog blanketed the Columbia River…

I got this photo by standing on a chair on my back porch. I love the way the tree and autumn foliage frame the factory across the river in Longview.

My friend, and poet, Glennis Roper and I have been discussing combining some of her haiku poems with some of my pictures. Here is the first we have combined together:
Fog hugs the river,
Fluffy blanket of pale mist
The sun dissipates.

Forest Sun Rays in the Snow #6 print

Ivy and moss covered evergreen trees lean to and fro, forming the shape of an N and W, in the steep sloping hills in the woods of Rainier Oregon as the melting snow drips from the trees, sparkling in the morning sun rays as it falls toward the bright white snow covered forest floor below.

Forest Sun Rays in the Snow #24 print

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.

Orbs of light hang in the air, caused by sunlight shining through the falling snow, in the forest on the way to Fox Creek, Rainier, Oregon, USA. Seen through the dark evergreen tree trunks, a bright white light illuminates the falling snow–inviting a wintry hike.

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.

Last month I was on my way to pick my son up from an after school activity, and the moon was so beautiful I stopped and took some pictures on the way. It seemed to loom larger than usual in the sky, full with visible craters.  The sky was just beginning to change colors for sunset, and the clouds were an array of soft lavender and pink. Unfortunately, even with my zoom lens it was not possible to catch the size and scale of the moon in the sky. In most of the shots The moon ended up appearing as a bright orb–rather than showing all the craters as it had when seen with a naked eye; however, I was able to go back in and edit the shadows in some of the photos to bring it them back out. Below is one of my favorites of the ones I took that evening:

The moon lights up misty clouds with translucent white light in a stormy looking purplish sky above Longview, Washington. Surrounded by mountain ranges which disappearing into distant haze, the city lights blaze like dots of fire along the banks of the Columbia River. Seen through the forest on the hills of Rainier, Oregon the river flows thought the Columbia River Gorge towards the sea as the dusk begins to deepen into night.

In this digitally altered photograph, a dryad appears like an apparition of peripheral vision raising twig-like hands towards the moon through the purple clouds in the pink twilight sky.

One morning when I was dropping my son off for school late (AGAIN), I saw these unusual looking mushrooms growing in the grass under some conifers by the parking lot. They were HUGE –at least 3-5 inches across and reminded me of something out of Alice in Wonderland. Some of them were deep red, others deep yellowish-orange, and one was a silvery white.  All of them had these big warty light colored patches all over them. I was really glad I had my camera on me ; )   The yellower ones even reminded me a bit of a sesame seed hamburger bun LOL. Intrigued, I decided to check on wikipedia to see if I could figure out what they were. Right at the top of their article about mushroom was a picture of one Amanita muscaria just like what I had photographed. I was astonished to find what I was looking for so easily. It turns out they are quite poisonous and get their common name (fly agaric or fly Amanita) from an ancient practice of using them to attract and kill flies.

Amanita muscaria var. formosa. or possibly  var. guessowii ? Globe shaped, immature yellowish orange mushroom speckled with warts ALL over the cap. Resembling a sesame seed hamburger bun, this poisonous mushroom is surrounded by grass covered in beads of morning dew.

A mature reddish brown Amanita Muscaria mushroom,  with tan warts which has become  concave– exposing the open gills below,  stands on dew covered grass strewn with pine needles.

Immature red amanita muscaria mushroom (possibly var. flavivolvata ?) with tan warts on a lawn of brown and green dew drop covered grass mixed with clover.

A large red amanita muscaria var. flavivolvata mushroom stands on a lawn bejeweled with drops of morning dew. When seen at full resolution, even the shadows of each wart on it are visible, showing each facet of it’s 3 dimensions.Almost hidden behind it is a newly forming amanita muscaria. Beyond is a lighter colored, and oddly shaped, amanita muscaria var. formosa which is fully open, exposing the gills to view.

Two amanita muscaria (probably var. guessowii) mushrooms of different sizes and maturity on a dew covered field of grass and clover strewn with pine needles. On the very large one, one of the warts reminds me of the spaceship Enterprise.

Two amanita muscaria var. guessowii mushrooms  cuddle up together lovingly, surrounded by dew covered grass.

Two amanita muscaria var. guessowii stand on field of dew covered grass. One is mature and open–but partially eaten by pests, the other immature and sheltered under cover of the older one. Both have characteristic light colored, bumpy warts  and yellowish orange coloring which is a deeper, redder color in the center.

The autumn sun shines in the fall sky , creating visible rays of light as it streams through the forest canopy.

Autumn Sun Rays #43 print

The bright autumn sun glows through the Oregon forest.

The autumn sun illuminates two clumps of maple “helicopters” hanging translucently in the air in front of a green forested background.

Maple leaves illuminated by the autumn sun reach upwards towards the softly focused drooping cedar greenery glistening with sunlit raindrops.

A lone cedar branch, glistening with drops of rain in the autumn sun, points like an old wizened finger towards a raindrop hanging in the air surrounded by the softly focused background full of fall foliage. A solitary strand of a spider web traverses from the branch and beyond the raindrop as it shines in the sun.
