Snake in the water

A friend of mine just purchased the same camera and lens that I’m currently using. He took it out for a spin on the Applegate River, not too far from Ashland. Today’s photo is his first with his new toy, and I did the editing from the RAW file.

Comet NEOWISE, take three

Only a couple more nights to see the comet. Best viewing chance is after 10 p.m. without a city’s lights in the northwest of your viewing angle.

Ashland Creek Walk

Ashland Creek in Lithia Park

Yesterday was one of those summer days that I’m not particularly fond of. Today will likely be the same. What am I referring to as I long for my usual Scandinavian summer? The heat!

Mornings are nice, and the evenings, after the sun goes down, are lovely, but the afternoons and evenings before sunset are brutal at close to 100 degrees. To try to beat the heat yesterday my daughter had the brilliant idea of doing a creek walk in Lithia Park. Simply walk into the freezing cold creek and walk upstream to cool down. Yesterday was so hot that we were still hot, both during and after. Anyway, today’s photo comes from that walk.

Today’s photo comes from July of 2015, which was also the last time I was in the USA in July (until this year). That year included a trip down the Wild & Scenic portion of the Rogue River, a wonderful July 4 celebration, and lots of Britt shows. There was also a bunch of smoke in the Rogue Valley that year.

This year there will be no trips down the Rogue, July 4 festivities, or Britt. Hopefully there won’t be any smoke as minor compensation.
