Trees! And fog! Trees in the fog! Douglas-fir trees in the fog! And a little yellow tree, also in the fog! Douglas-fir trees and a little yellow tree in the fog at Pioneer Park! The little tree likely isn’t yellow anymore, though, since I took this a week and a half ago. So sad.
The Jordan Bridge, my favorite Stayton landmark, was looking rather pretty a few days ago at Pioneer Park. The colorful autumn leaves did a nice job of framing the two bridges, which made it easy for me to just stand there and take the picture.
I went by Pioneer Park yesterday to take more autumn leaves photos, and happened upon Kelly Schreiber, from the Stayton-Sublimity Chamber Of Commerce, and her husband installing more disc golf goals in the park. When everything is completed, there will be nine goals at Pioneer park, and nine more at Church Park in nearby Sublimity. Combined, they make for a full circuit.
Disc golf certainly seems to be popular. When I was there about a week ago, three groups were playing, and today another group was out there.
Thanks to Kelly and her husband for letting me photograph them.
It’s been a while since I last posted a photo of the Jordan Bridge — and by “a while” I mean a few weeks — so here’s another, because I know everyone in the entire world was just waiting for it. But at least this one is from a different angle than last time, which makes it completely different.
Some of you know of my camera’s recent trip to the shop to have its shutter problems fixed. I am happy to report it came back home yesterday, and appears to be in full working order. I want to thank all the guest photographers who helped me fill the last two weeks with some awesome photos. I still have two or three yet to post, in fact. But since I took my camera out for a spin yesterday, I figured I’d post one of the photos I took.
Well, four photos, actually. I couldn’t decide on just one. This dog was having the time of his life chasing after a rather large stick in water beside the Jordan Bridge at Pioneer Park. Did you know it’s hard to get a clear photo of a dog splashing around in the water? It is. I gave it my best shot, though.
Click on the thumbnails below to see more of the dog. He’s adorable.
This is why I love spring — it’s so danged colorful. The bright pink trees in front of the Jordan Bridge at Pioneer Park couldn’t have been prettier yesterday.
I took a similar photo last year, but from further back along the path.
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson captured this gorgeous scene of the Jordan Bridge at Pioneer Park surrounded by hoar frost. So pretty. Thanks, Maryann!
