221. Heavy Sleeper

To my husband, this machine is 'the nine-eighty'.
To me, it was the highlight of a dawn's-early-light photo excursion.

On that early morning, I had seen the sun rise and the mountains glowing and the rivers sparkling, and vista after beautiful vista. And then...then, heading back home, I rounded the bend and saw this; this sleepy old fella catching the first rays of the day. Swoon. :)

Is there something wrong with me? ;)

Our church is perched on a hill overlooking the flat and farmy Columbia River dikelands.
I always like this view, but last Friday night it was especially lovely. :)

Happy Mother's Day!

I have some fun wave photos from Indian Beach and I've been wanting to attempt this zoomed-in shot for a while. I'm happy with the result, especially since I nearly wiped it a dozen times. 
Sometimes, they just don't jive until the very end.

Thanks for viewing!
