Happy Monday!

For those of you who have a "case of the mondays" (line from Office Space, awesome movie) and are checking my blog at work... procrastinating from doing work, (you know who you are!) here are some more photos from my dirtbike ride Saturday evening in the east hills. To our family and friends around the US and the world... come visit us in Hood River! It's gorgeous here!

The yellow wildflowers grow everywhere in the surrounding hills, they are called "Balsam Root"

Mt. Hood at sunset

Mt. Rainier in Washington

It was basically dark when I shot this one. 30 second exposure, beautiful light!

I actually was hoping there would be more movement and blur in the flowers, but I guess it wasn't all that windy... strange because it's usually always super windy up there!
A wide angle reduces the amount of blur a bit too. The closer you are, the harder it gets to keep things sharp. I tried a few close ups and gave up quickly!

SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Someday Blaine, if you're really really lucky, you too might be able to charge people $700+ to hang out and ride along with you on your dirt bike and be enamored by your presence.... LOL...... plus dirt bikes beat having lunch in L.A. any day!!! ; )

So beautiful!I miss Oregon!
I will be in Portland over the
summer break, btw.

Why do a lot of your photos
have dark shades on every corner?
You might have told me about this
when I visited, but I forgot.
Something to with the editing?

I'm striving to take pictures
like yours! Need a lot more
practice and knowledge...
