Come, Join for a drink …

Collect moments, not things !
Slow down, enjoy the view , have a drink :)

There are several view points and highway pull outs from where views of Mt. Hood can be enjoyed. But Panorama view point is probably on the top of the list. It is not very well known, probably because the directions to the same are not well marked.  But being so close to Hood River and the Hwy 84, you could just drive up to enjoy the view right from the car. Or just get down and plan to have a drink at the picnic tables while enjoying the view !

Little Explorers at Latourell Falls

Latourell Falls in the Columbia Gorge is one of my favorite falls. It has a beauty of its own – be it rain or shine. This particular day – along with the rain, the spray from the falls was so much that I could not even get my camera out.  Having the falls to myself, I decided to let the camera rest and enjoy the serenity of the scene. Just then these two little guys came in – well equipped – to explore the falls. There was no stopping them be it the rain or the spray from the falls.

Many times,  adding a human element to landscapes adds beauty and scale. And there are no second thoughts when they happen to be cute kids like these :) I just couldn’t resist … and the rain, as if agreeing with me, stopped for a brief time – letting me capture this lovely moment. How do u like it ?!!!

The Magic of Autumn

I love fall. I love the cool, crisp air and the way all the trees change color. I love the smell of the fallen leaves, their the crunching noise when dry and the beauty they add to any autumn scene dancing in water.

For a season that is preparing to get into hibernation, Autumn is just truly magical. Sure, everything is dying, but even that happens with so much grace and beauty. Is the magic of Autumn due to the colors or is it the art of letting go …

The Last Rays of 2012

Eve of the new year – It was a lovely drive back from Bandon to Portland – right along the Pacific coast 101. When it was not raining , it was out right overcast and or misty, giving a dreamy feel to the drive. We never thought there would be any chance of enjoying a sunset on such a day. But as always, things are not what they seem … Just around 4 PM, the entire mood started to change. The clouds started to roll over & break out – to create a euphoria of colors. As the sun set here, behind the pacific northwest, it was indeed kicking off the new year in the other side of the world – sounds funny right :) I present to you the last rays of 2012 !

An Evening in Bandon & 2012 In Review

2012 In Review

Based on an update from WordPress, this little blog got over 10,000 views this year. From Freezing some amazing light to capturing some meteors to enjoying some harvest  moons – it was one hell of a year ! I cannot thank enough who take time to visit, enjoy, comment and encourage my work. Thank you so very much !

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 10,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 17 years to get that many views.

Click here to see the complete report.

Incidentally the first shot that I took and shared in 2012 –  Seattle skyline with space needle was the most viewed and commented shot of the year… I had been doing the weekly shot for the past few years and it has been great. For 2012, I had posted for 50 out of 52 weeks, that is pretty close :) But with all the fb, g+ and all other social media, am thinking of having the blog for longer articles, travel experiences etc. and use the social outlets for sharing the weekly captures. Am still debating on the same, what do you think ?!

Just made a slideshow of some favorite shots from 2012 for you to enjoy … Keep Visiting !

An Evening in Bandon

Beach combing, or shooting the sea stacks or just taking a long stroll along the cool waters – Bandon has it all. Here is only lovely Golden sunset from the rugged beach of Bandon. And a very Happy New Year – 2013 to my Friends out here. Thanks for the encouragement and support :)

Bandon Sea Stack at Twilight

As the forecast was for some really clear skies, I was planning to shoot some sun star today, but the clouds decided otherwise ! Thought the sun went behind the layer of clouds, the colors of twilight didn’t disappoint either. Bandon seems to be having the best of sea stacks in the Oregon coast. There is just such a long stretch that you can spend hours and hours here !!!
