4/1/15 - One of the most unexpected things for me on the Oregon coast was the sand dunes that you see in many places.   Unfortunately, there did not seem to be any good way to get really good povs on the dunes.  I shot this from the car as the were driving along and was surprised that it turned out.  I did have to crop out a lot of the image in order to get what I think is an effective composition.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the rosebud with the drops.  I really enjoyed looking through all your post today!

Taking a Look at the Sky  Tent Rocks is such a fabulous place; the rock formations are breathtaking.  I liked the natural composition of the rocks in this shot and the way the sun fell on them.
Like a great wall, the vertical cliffs that mark the Tapeats Sandstone cap, ~500 million years old, atop the Precambrian Vishnu Schist (~1.5 billion years old) run like a ribbon through this scene, starting at the left center.  A combination of severe tilting of the older layers and erosion of the intervening strata have either buried or stripped away 1 billion years of geologic record. Such unconformities (gaps in the rock record) occur in many other places around the world.  The one on display in the Grand Canyon is one of the more spectacular examples, earning it the name 'Great Unconformity', awarded to it by John Wesley Powell in the 19th century.  Strictly speaking (according to Wikipedia), the juxtaposition of the Tapeats sandstone directly atop the Vishnu schist is a nonconformity, rather than an unconformity.  DP091-2015  Posted Wednesday, April 1 Looking downstream (south and west) from a point a few miles downstream from the confluence of the Little Colorado River with the Colorado River.  The massive wall of dark stone on the left (south) bank is Vishnu schist, the only metamorphic layer exposed in the canyon, and also the oldest.  If you're a geology nut like myself, read more about the phenomenon online, certainly, and in books (what a concept!).

April 1 - Riding Across  This is an image of my husband during a trail ride.  It was taken in the early morning light on his horse named "Storm".  Thanks so much for your kind comments on my elk image yesterday.  They are very much appreciated.

April 1 2015 Happy 18th Birthday to Joey and Jake  The brothers are having a good day.
Sunset on Priarie Queen Lake March 31, 2015  A brand new lake in the area.  Today was opening day for this lake, so I had to go out. However, it was not my first time out there.  It is going to be a nice lake to add to the rotation for our Wednesday night paddling group.  Tonight was a beautiful evening.
April 1.  Added a plastic wrap filter to this orchid.
04-01-2015 "Light on Urn"  I noticed how the sunlight was hitting the urn as the light came through the trees surrounding the building.  Thanks for your comments on my photos.  I'm glad my dogwood blooms brought a little spring to each of you.  I hope to catch up commenting tonight. Donna

Wednesday, April 1, 2015 (April Fool's Day)  "CUTTY SARK" MODEL  "It is not the ship so much as the skillful sailing that assures the prosperous voyage." ~ George William Curtis  April, already? Where did March go?   SOOC, uncropped, flash fired  Here's a photo of one of my absolute favorite handcrafted model ships in the museum, and there were many.  "The producers of the "Great Ships" on the History Channel not only filmed much of their program using our collections, but they also called them a "Gold Mine!" A national military and inland waterway museum and resource center, a walk through the Old Depot Museum is a walk through military and maritime history.  Ships and boats long forgotten come to life in exact replica." ~ Reprinted text from here:   http://www.theolddepot.net/ships.htm  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
