Ellipsis Photo Shoot and Nature Notes: Earth Day






This week Carly from Ellipsis invites us to celebrate Earth Day by showing something in the natural world that we particularly appreciate. I love living in a place where we can see sights like this on clear days; or be on a beach at the Pacific Ocean in a little over an hour. Forests, mountains, deserts, rivers, lakes, ocean beaches - we have it all here in a small circumference. I love Oregon.


Mt. Hood. Taken from Mt. Tabor - a Portland park near our house - yesterday, Tuesday April 21st.

Combining this with Michelle's Nature Notes for this week.

Hi Terri :)

What a stunning sight! I want to get up to Oregon sometime. Alan and I talk about taking a long car ride, and all that beauty really calls me and my camera! Beautiful!

I would love to be an hour from the ocean beach as the only beach close to here would be on Lake Erie. lol. This is a fantastic view...Perfect for Nature Notes....

Awesome! No, really. Literally awesome. It almost looks like it's floating in mid-air!

I also did Nature Notes - I hope you’ll stop by mine!

Wow. This is beautiful. It looks like the mountain is floating in the sky.

We are truly lucky, with Mt. Hood in our back yard and the beach so close by. That's a beautiful picture -- one that could go on a calendar or postcard!

It almost looks like it is floating in mid-air with the snow on it. Very nice shot!
