  1. so beautiful Tyler you know how to take good photos πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! My wife tells me that because I’m so tall, I can see things nobody else can see….LOL! I think it’s because I’m lucky to be in the right place at the right moment & because I take so many photos that through sheer numbers, I can find a few decent photos to post (& lots of subpar photos that I don’t post!). Have a wonderful weekend!

    Your images make the best of it: Lovely views of quite similar weather like here between Hannover and Berlin. We miss some sunshiny days, and nature needs to get more calm and dry urgently instead of further storms and floods of rain.

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! Wintertime in Oregon is always wet & rainy…it’s quite dreary & depressing not seeing the sun for days. Hopefully the sun’s warm rays return (if only briefly) to grace your corner of the world πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful day!

    Moody dramatic skies make the best photos

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! I agree! Such a contrast…like a big bold mountain of clouds looming over your head, waiting to rumble, break open & shed its weighty wet shards. Have a wonderful weekend, Miriam!

        How wonderfully poetic Tyler. Beautiful. I’m having a great weekend thanks, it’s my son’s birthday and last night went to a roaring 1920s party which was lots of fun. Hope life is treating you well. πŸ™‚

      • Thank you, Miriam! And a happy birthday to your son! Sounds like you had a roaring good time πŸ˜‰ Life is good! A lot of changes on the horizon for 2018, but I’m excited! Enjoy your weekend, my friend πŸ™‚

      • Miriam says:

        Thanks Tyler. Yes, lots of changes around me too but I have a feeling that 2018 is going to be a wonderful year. Stay excited my friend. Life IS good. πŸ™‚

    Wow, Tyler! So gorgeous! Did you study photography? How much alteration do you have to do to create such amazing photos? Thank you for sharing them!

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! You are most welcome…it’s my pleasure πŸ™‚ I’m humbled by your high praise πŸ™ No, I majored in Ecology & Minored in Art History & Criticism. Photography has always been a hobby of mine. But I do feel like I’m cheating using an iPhone & processing photos in Picasa on my Apple laptop. A good photograph takes patience to snap…it’s all about being in the right place at the right moment. Part luck, part technology & all inspired by Nature! Have a wonderful weekend πŸ™‚

      • larastillo says:

        Ecology! It shows in how you’re approaching nature and lifestyle, I think? Beautiful “) And really well-said about the art of photography – great reminder that patience and persistence make great art – cheers =)!

    Tyler…We visited on January 12th for the first time! I’m anxious to return. What day were you there?

    • Awesome! We always seem to miss each other! Last time in Newport & we were there the same day I think! Last Monday (1/15) my wife, daughter & I were there. It was a short hike because of the downpour, but always refreshing & inspiring! Finley holds a special place in my heart. I’m going to miss Corvallis & Eugene. I recently accepted a job offer with the Tualatin SWCD in Hillsboro & will be moving up there permanently in April. My official start date is 2/5. I’m excited to start a new job in a new community & watershed, although there’s a lot we need to figure out in between (sell our house, my wife needs to find a job, we need to find a new daycare & rental). Change is never easy, but what better time than at the start of the New Year! Have a wonderful weekend, Jane! I hope to finally meet you one of these days πŸ™‚

      • JANE says:

        This is a small world… I’m familiar with TSWCD. A friend of mine was the education and outreach person there. She encouraged and supported an idea I had a couple of years ago to start a friends group for one of the small watersheds that flows into McKay Creek that flows into the Tualatin. Our watershed is Glencoe Swale. I’m currently working on plans to get our group back on a eco/conservation focus (the original foundation). We were sidetracked for the past year to find a solution to problems triggered when a new FIRM went into effect 11/16. I’m sure we will meet each other. It’s exciting to hear about your new job…
        Wishing you the best-

  9. The last two photographs are really extraordinary, Tyler.

  10. Stunning shots. I can see a calendar taking shape πŸ‘Œ

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! I’m glad you enjoyed my photos πŸ™‚ I give all the credit to Mother Nature & her endless inspiration! Have a wonderful rest of your weekend & all the best in the week ahead πŸ™‚
