Morning Light

Golden light shines through the crack in the sky.

Cold Moon

Playing with the new camera - the last photo was taken on the "sunset" setting.

Guard Duty

Jesse, on his hill, surveying his kingdom. From here he has a view down the road, over part of the pasture, and of both entrances to the house. It is his self-appointed task to keep the area in front of the house safe. He checks out the draft horses in the far pasture several times a day as well.

The River

Visiting my friends on the Cowlitz River is always a joy, with good companionship and a lovely, wildlife-filled view.

This group of Goldeneye Ducks kept flying upriver and floating back down. The area in front of the house seems to be desirable, but the current is very strong and the ducks get whisked downstream.

A group of Canada geese were also hanging about. They seem slightly less affected by the current. I haven't figured out how to get my new camera to focus on what I want, so please forgive the fuzziness.

Cleaning fish (yum!) - trout today. The winds have blown this moss into some beautiful patterns. It is everywhere, this close to the river.
