I'll just go ahead and apologize right now for all the images containing Cherry Blossoms that are coming. They showed up a little early this year in our neighborhood.
As I've mentioned here before, Jonsrud point is one of my favorite places at sunrise. This particular morning the view out toward the mountain was a bust, but I hung around for a good hour afterward and as the sun broke over the top of the clouds, everything lit up in Oregon Summer Sunrise light. This iimage is from my latest couple rolls of film from my Hasselblad.
I'm not sure what species of flower this is, and not for a lack of Googling. If you know, enlighten us in the comments!
Like most photographers who aren't taking photos professionally, there are sometimes days that go by when I'm either not inspired to take pictures or I'm just so overwhelmed by other things (like work) that the camera just never makes it out of my bag. This two week stretch was like that for me.
We're heading out this afternoon to rejoin our kids who have been with their grandparents for the past week in Coos Bay. I'm really hoping to get out and make some great images while we're there.
These grow in our frontyard every spring without fail.
