9/11 Remembrance

This image is dedicated to the victims of 9/11. It seems like yesterday but 10 years will have passed this weekend since that dreadful day. This image was shot 10 years ago in Escanaba, Michigan which is where I will be in a few days on yet another trip. I will try to recreate this shot with the flag at full staff while I'm there. But for now, this image will remain up on my picture-of-the-day site until I get back in October.

Central Oregon Coast

Here is a soft focused Daffodil Amaryllidaceae to get you through a rainy Tuesday (at least it is here in San Diego).

Central Oregon Coast

Blue is my favorite color and here are some blue bell-like flowers.

Central Oregon Coast

The Oregon Coast was loaded with Rhododendron blooms when we were there in May. There are approximately 800 species that belong to this huge group with over 10,000 named varieties. This is just one blossom of many thousands that we saw.
