This is Iron Creek Falls, East of Mount St. Helens.
I took this last fall on a trip to Windy Ridge Viewpoint for a wind buffeted night sleeping in the car.

Are there any +Fitbit users in my circles? Any users who want to share stats by being friends?
I've been using my Fitbit One for a month now and it's been interesting seeing how (in)active I am.

You just take that? It's a great place with even a good fishing pond across the road.

I"m reposting this from last night because for some reason the image uploaded was very small. I seem to always screw up somehow when posting from mobile. Thanks for the views though :-)

The balsam root and lupine isn't as dense under the scrub oaks but the addition of the red paintbrush makes a nice scene.

Was wondering why the image was so small, but liked the composition nonetheless. Much more satisfying detail in this one!

Today it happened and I didn't miss it!
The 2004 KIA Sorento has been a wonderful vehicle, if only it got better gas mileage.

Fireworks Overload
If y'all could take the time to +1 the ones that strike you it would help me decide which ones to enter in a contest :-)
These are 19 pictures I took during the 4th celebration in #thedalles  Oregon. I've lived here for 13 years and this is this first #fireworks  show that's been put on here in that time. They did a great job! So far, plans are already under way to have another one next year. If you're in Oregon or Washington you should come enjoy the show. The Dalles is a great natural amphitheater for such a display.

Thanks +Michael Hatten 
Yeah, It's getting on the warm side and the hills around here are starting to look like giant sand dunes :-)

I got this a couple weekends ago outside of Kent Oregon. It's probably the shot that will finally push me into multiple exposures and some experimenting with HDR. The sun never would cooperate and light up the old buildings enough for me.

Thanks so much for that link +Greg Vaughn I'll take a look at it and see if I can translate it to RawTherapee and Gimp.

I decided to go on this walk after work one day last week. I was lucky enough to catch the S.S. Legacy, a boat I saw docked at The Dalles earlier in the day, on the Columbia River.
I also got powerlines :-)

Story

I'm kinda neat when my neurons are firing right.
Introduction
I grew up in the piney woods of east Texas and at the age of 26 I moved to Oregon where I attended Oregon State University. I earned a civil engineering degree there and got a job in The Dalles, Oregon. I design buildings and other structures which can be made of wood, masonry, concrete and occasionally steel. Wood residential design is by far my favorite type of work.

Things I like, or potential circles you may wish to put me in. 
  • Oregon 
  • Pacific Northwest
  • Photography (mostly landscape and wildlife) 
  • Smoking and grilling meat
  • Craft beer
  • Cajun/Southern food
  • Blues music
