Before a tsunami hits the tide will recede back exposing the ocean floor. I’d like to think something similar is happening this winter on the mountain. We’re experiencing a “low tide” but hopefully that means a tsunami is coming to flood the mountain with snow soon.
@virginia_lily and Willow hiked out about a quarter mile into the middle of the dunes. Willow could see me from a distance and ran back to be, saw Virginia and ran all the way back to her, turned around once more and began to run back to me, this time stopping half way to be perfectly between us.
Yesterday didn’t feel real, I can’t believe this is on the Oregon coast. Turquoise water, soft beaches, islands with trees somehow grabbing the top, and a puppy to keep us company while we bathed in the sunshine all day.
Unzipped the tent at 3 am and stumbled out to the lake, set up my tripod by the light of my headlamp and set the exposure for 30 seconds. I’ll never forget that moment where the shutter was open and I sat in silence watching the stars dance on the lake. There’s something interesting about astrophotography, it’s a gateway to something surreal, something you can’t see with a bare eye.
