Guest photographer Denny Barnes brings us this lovely sunset, taken a couple of nights ago. His description:
Went out to see if I could get a shot of the comet in the west just after sunset but no such luck. The clouds got in the way but the sunset was pretty. Grabbed a couple shots just as the sun disappeared. I’ll try again if we have clear skies the next couple days.
Guest photographer Marilee Darby took this lovely sunset photo in (fairly nearby) Albany, which is about 25 miles from Stayton. But since it’s the same sky here, too, I call it close enough. Especially when it’s this pretty. Thanks, Marilee!
Guest photographer Dorothy Loftin did this thing where she went outside during sunrise and took today’s beautiful photo. I’m personally not terribly familiar with sunrises, as I much prefer to be where I can see them, since my bed doesn’t have an eastern view. Dorothy’s description:
A quick step outside this morning provided a serene feeling. I’ve watched these trees be planted, grown, Mostly harvested, and then break as the winter ice and the winds of the Valley wreck havoc upon them. This morning they were illuminated by the light of a new day.
Happy New Year, everyone!
Today’s photo is a repeat. New Year’s Day is the only time I post a duplicate photo. It’s a way of reminding myself what on earth I posted the previous year (I forget), and picking out a favorite to share as a way to wrap up the previous year.
Ever Onward (see the original post) was taken just barely outside of town, on Fern Ridge Rd.

I hate to post basically the same thing two days in a row, but the weather around here has been less than cooperative, which means I haven’t been able to go out and take new photos. Today’s photo is another shot of the sunset from a few days (see also: When Night Comes).
I was out and about last night during sunset, so here’s a photo. Of the sunset. You know, in case you were wondering what this is. Sunset. Where the sun sets. On the horizon. Because it’s not technically setting anywhere, because it’s a big star out there in the sky and earth revolves around it. But, still, it looks like it’s setting. So, what I’m trying to say is this: sunsets are pretty.
It looks like I missed out on something rather pretty. Guest photographer Denny Barnes brings us this very red sunset from two nights ago:
I suppose everyone was out taking photos of the sunset tonight. My wife called to me saying it sure is a pretty sunset but by the time I grabbed my little camera to get a shot it had already faded some. It was still pretty but better earlier. Anyway, this is what I got.
