I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “I really should work out more.” Sure, but what’s that have to do with today’s photo? Nothing. You’re not very helpful at the moment.
Here’s what you should be thinking: “Hey, Celine posted yet another fog photo! This is so exciting, I might faint!” Do you see the difference between the two statements? Look closely and read them several times, if necessary. Are you through? Good, let’s move on.
This photo was taken on a very foggy day! Like all of my previous photos (with one exception) from the last week. Because fog is cool. And there’s nothing like beating a theme into the ground. I took this particular photo next to the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St.
This is the bridge spanning the Santiam River just south of town, by the boat launch ramp next to the sand and gravel place. Yup, a bridge. And it was foggy. And I took a picture. And posted it here. And that’s all.
Yesterday I attended a memorial service for my second grade teacher, a lifelong family friend, and an all around amazing woman, Marg Limbocker. As I was leaving the church, I found this leaf on the ground, and it reminded me of her — unique, colorful, and memorable. She made a big impact in my life, as she did many, many others, and I will miss her.
Here’s another photo from our very foggy Monday, this time some of the oak trees on the street which runs beside/behind the hospital off of 10th Ave. I still miss the second tree which used to be by the big one (here’s one shot of them in happier times).
This raindrop-filled spider web was hanging from the railing on the south end of 4th Ave., near a big red barn. That barn and its reflection in the water below the railing is refracted in the water drops.
I would claim I did all that on purpose, but the truth is I stuck my camera with its macro lens attached down below the web so it was up against the railing for support, and took several shots from different angles and hoped for the best. It worked.
Here’s another photo from the very foggy Monday we had here in Stayton. This is one of the small bits of water near the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. Fog has a way of making things look ethereal. Or maybe I’ve just seen too man movies.
Monday was very foggy, so I took the opportunity to go around town to get as many photos as I could. I took this one at the boat launch along the Santiam River just south of town, next to the sand and gravel place.
This is actually over-exposed, as I was taking bracketed exposures (normal, 2 f-stops above, and 2 f-stops below), and decided this one looks nifty like this.
About a week ago I posted a photo of some tree trunks with scattered leaves around them. The leaves on the trees finally turned this beautiful yellow, so here’s another shot of them. These trees live along Shaff Rd., across from Bi-Mart.
Guest photographer Tom Miller sent in these two lovely photos (click on the thumbnail at right to see the other one full size) of the Larwood Covered Bridge, which spans Crabtree Creek near Scio. Just a bit to the right of where these photos were taken is where the Roaring River flows into the creek, which is a geographical anomaly and pretty cool to see.
