Entries in trees (3)



I started noticing this stand of trees a couple months ago in the Columbia River Gorge near Horsetail Falls.  Ever since then they’ve looked dead, desolate, and dark.  I wonder what they’ll look like in the spring…

into the fog

It seems like it has been foggy near our home everyday for the last few weeks. Really neat banks of fog roll in and out of the Columbia River Gorge and while I was out road biking I came across this stand of trees that just perfect faded off into the distance.


the sentinels at sunset

I took a quick one day trip down from Minneapolis to northern Illinois to see my dad and brother who were up in the area.  You know how these go - get up early, drive out, spend as much time as you can, drive back as fast as possible.
It was a great day and I didn’t have much intention of taking photos along the way but I was glad I brought my camera.  As I headed west, out a little ways in a farm field I saw this amazing sunset beaming through a stand of trees.  It was one of those moments where you get really excited about what you are seeing and hope it doesn’t go away before you can get your camera out and set up.  The view from the road wasn’t optimal so I drove into a nearby apartment complex, parked, hopped a small fence and quickly ran off into the field near the trees.
It was late fall with no leaves left but the grass was still green and these massive trees gave the appearance as if they were standing guard to the what lay beyond.
