The pink flowers in my front yard are several days gone now. These white ones in the backyard seem to have a longer life span, although many have fallen this week. I took this photo a week ago. As Ashland’s cherry blossom season ends, Japan’s is just beginning.

I rather like the sun stars my Nikkor 20mm f/1.8g AF-S lens produces at f/16.

West Rim Drive in winter

Snowshoeing on Crater Lake’s West Rim Drive

Although Crater Lake’s snow pack is less than 30% of normal for this time of year, it is one of the few places in Southern Oregon with any snow. After bailing on our attempt to snowshoe near the Upper Rogue River due to lack of snow, we did enjoy a walk from the Rim Village to Discovery Point in 60 degree temperatures. Snowshoes weren’t absolutely necessary, but they were useful at times.

Friday was the last day of this year to catch this scene. The leaves were falling fast and furiously (as you can see if you look really closely at today’s photo; those are leaves in the air, not birds), and the weekend was a windy one.

Triangle Park is located between Siskiyou Boulevard, Iowa Street, and Morton Street

When I previously used a D7000 and Tokina 11-16mm lens I enjoyed experimenting with sun stars. I haven’t found a lens that did them very good on full frame, though, until I tried yesterday with my Nikkor 20mm f/1.8g. Bingo!

All schools are closed in Ashland today

This is not what Ashland looks like at the moment. Today’s photo was taken back in January in the mountains to the east of Ashland. In fact, there is no snow in Ashland as I write this. However, the forecast is for snow so they have closed the schools.

Another back to school day

Autumn on the SOU campus

Soon things won’t look so great. By the end of November only the evergreen trees will be something other than brown and dreary. These last few moments of the fall season are to be cherished.

The buildings in the background of today’s photo of the Southern Oregon University campus are the Computer Sciences buildings (Computing Services and the Main Computer Lab).
