Mt St. Helens, Washington:













It is rather awe inspiring, what was and is a geological wonder is also now a biological wonder as life returns to a place that was once described as being more desolate than the surface of the moon.

This mountain never sleeps.

I'm studying on a new (to me) printing process. The following is from the description of the methodology.
"By now you are thinking this really sounds like a tedious, involved process. Guess what genius—you’re right! This is not for the hobbyist, this process is for the unemployed or the idle rich."

Igo - I agree. My second trip to see it in McMinnville, but saw her first as a kid in Long Beach.

A few more from my trip:


Yaquina Bay Bridge from Newport Harbor




Agate Beach, Newport

Pcad, I don't know if you're familiar with the animation company Studio Ghibli, but that shot has Ghibli written all over it. And that's a good thing!

Keith, thanks for sharing some of the St.Helens shots, it's wonderful to see how it's started to be reborn. I am going to have to make a point of returning there some time in the near future to see it for myself.

arkansasgal, wonderful colors and texture!

One more of the Yaquina Head Lighthouse, this time from the beach below the southern cliff face.

These are wonderful, by the way. I love the colors and contrast in the first one and the subtlety of the second.
