Back from Oregon

Yaquina Head lighthouse

It has been a while since we last posted on our blog. 30+ days of 100+ degrees of heat, and little incentive to take a picture or even leave home. Fortunately we opted out of Texas for a few days at Coastal Oregon. Our dear friends Carol and Chris were hosting a photo workshop and we eagerly anticipated a change of scenery, unique photo opportunities and time with incomparable Carol and Chris.
What a great trip. We started in Waldport and spent 4 days exploring the coast to Astoria and finally we hung a right to Portland for a day before returning to Texas.
Elena and I have taken so many pictures that frankly seem pretty interesting. Now embark on post processing adventures to get the best out of these pictures.
Check in from time to time and see what you think.


  1. Russ and Elena, For so long it's seemed like your whereabouts were unknown. Started to worry a little...happy you're back! And with stories and photos too! I'll bet you really enjoyed the climate change...lovely photo.

  2. What a FANTASTIC treatment for the lighthouse! Wish I'd thought of it. :-) Very pretty image, Elena.

  3. Carol & Sharon,
    Thank you for the lovely comments. We had a marvelous time. Been up to the wee hours doing edits, post processing and reliving the fabulous days spent in Oregon.
    Thank you so much!
    Elena & Russ
