Kalaloch sunset, olympic national park last week. as it turns out, kalaloch beach where i was staying is mostly one big expanse of sand, very beautiful of course, but no sea stacks or other interesting things to use in composing. there is, however, a massive amount of driftwood, and by that i mean huge trees, at various places on kalaloch for future fun! i found this little mound of rocks though and used them. i visited the “sexier” ruby but it was a crowded midday scene and i just enjoyed seeing them for the first time without photo taking.

Ramona falls has always been one of my favorite hikes. this past weekend was the fourth time i’ve done it, although only the third time on purpose. the last time i was at ramona falls, i had gotten lost trying to hike mcneil point. it was nice to be here again under more positive circumstances!! i would rate it as moderate. it was about 8 miles round trip (it’s a lollipop loop) and about 1,000 feet elevation gain. there is no bridge across the sandy river so you’ll have to cross on a fallen log, but it’s not too difficult.

Every evening my husband checks his weather app to see how his morning ride will be. casually he said it would be ☀️ and up to 79*!
erk, i said, that’s too bad! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
then i realized that was spoken like a true #northwesterner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
this girl loves her 🌧 cloudy days!
i try to plan my days with outside work completed by noon so i can hide inside where it’s cool. i get a second wind around 5 and can go out and w**d and water.
maybe it’s why this cool north-facing #containercombo works for me! refreshing variegation, cool blues and greys with a lot of plum and purple woven in.
maybe this afternoon’s hide-from-the-sun task will be to start writing that shade-combo blog post for you.
until i get distracted by making dinner, and watering.
how about you? sun dancer or shade shifter?

Oh hey, wait it’s composite tuesday right??.... anyways here’s a blue hour wildflowers shot with a milky way sky added to it. i’m generally not to big on compositing everything, but i think i’d like to do it some for sure cause it’s kinda fun and also if it’s a horizon like this one it’s super super easy to do.. this location is also one that i happened to come across a year prior, but since i went over board with waterfalls for a while i didn’t get to shoot flowers that year.. fast forward to this years bloom and after a stop by one day while out with @bronwyni i realized that yeah flowers do bloom there.. so a few days later while out with @dreamcapturedimages we again stopped in which kinda led to me spending a roughly a week shooting there either on the weekends or during the week after work all alone besides when @dreamcapturedimages & @rizzosphotos came out a few times to shoot and also to get their own milky way shots from there & flower shots which by the way are also super killer.. i’d also like to say bronwyni also has some good wildflowers shots posted up for this past year.. 😉 @skyaddic #milkywaygalaxy #nightscaper #ig_astrophotography #milkywaychasers #nightphotography #amazing_longexpo #longexposure_world #starlitlandscapes #stellar_shots #earth_pix #hq_globe #pnw #oregonexplored #shainblumff#wildflowerseason#ig_escaype #passporttoearth #pnwphotographer #pnwcollective #pnwcrew #upperleftcoast #main_vision #capturenz #nightscapades
