A Journey from my Camera’s Eye

 From my mountains in British Columbia Canada thru central Washington to the ocean at Seaside Oregon in the United States.  I share my visual journey thru my camera’s eye.


Lenore Lake Region
Canyon walls that rise so high,
carved from torrent ice age floods
transforming the landscape forever.
Road Trip Princeton to Seaside Oregon


Soap Lake Sundial
Pointing to the heavens so that time can be told.

Columbia River Landscape
Rooted to a million dollar view.

Running of the Horses
Shadows that roam free and wild.

Seaside at Night
Alone in the night following where my eye leads.

Days End at Seaside
Twilight casts its glow for those that linger behind.

Lamplight at Seaside
Lighting the way at night
in a sea full of darkness.

Stone Hedge Memorial
A mirage standing alone on the barren landscape.

The Windmills
In my mind they generate both
positive and negative thoughts.

Columbia River
So big and blue as it
snakes thru the barren landscape.

Chief Joseph Dam
Energy of man looms over the energy of nature.

Patients my Dear
Being patient and still, finally that elusive
visitor comes to me.

Spirit Lake Fire
The spirits were angered this day as man had
started this fire.
Fighting Fires


Valley of Haze
Thru the smoke filled sky’s, the glory of the sun
still cast its glow on the valley.
Fighting Fires


Nearing Home
Charging to meet the setting sun.
Smoky Setting Sun and Bull  

 In all your travels may your have a

Good Morning… Good Afternoon…  Good Night…

Whatever it is to you.

Great pics Carrie. Seaside / Canon Beach is one of my favorite places to go. We were there last Summer.

Hope said...

Hi Carrie, I am sorry I thought I had posted here the other day..guess not.."smile".I am so happy that you were able to visit with your family and had that wonderful time at the beach.. I love the photos you took..its neat that we were able to see some of the same things on our trip to the coast..its been a good summer for many of us this year. memories that we will cherish for a life time. hope your day is very special.. soft hugs

Hope said...

Hi again.. had to come back and see all of this again.. like the horse statues.. when I was this on the way back to Montana, I thought to my self what a wonderful elussion that would create as the sun goes down.. they look so real. I love how you captured them.. and the windmills.. my heavens.. there were miles and miles and miles of them.. your capture brought out their beauty..
and the Stone Hedge that man built.. wonderful wonderful capture.. there was a castle up a little further that he also built.. I so wanted to stop for these unusual and awesome sights on the way back.. but my dad was driving..he is going to be 90 this Dec.. so asking him to pull over to the side of the road was not possible. "smile"..
but now because of your insight and love.. I can come back here time and time again.. and smile..
good luck with the picking.. nights are getting longer as you say.. strange weather once again.
thinking of you.. soft hugs

Loving those photos Carrie. Especially much. That first one just made my morning for me (I got up maybe half an hour ago..the cat allowed me to sleep in {for us})
All of them are frame worthy. Gorgeous.

Kerry said...

What a great series of photos. I especially like the one with the horses and the last one.

Connie said...

Carrie, your photos are wonderful. Brought back memories of out trip to Oregon the end of March. The train followed the Columbia River...never tired of seeing it. We also ended up at Seaside, but was windy and cold, so didn't stay. We saw lots of windmills across Montana.
Thank you for sharing your journey.

Sandy's witterings said...

What a gorgious pile of photos - sweeping country, clouds sunsets, statues and a close up of a dragonfly - what more could you ask. You and your little camera do alright. Keep on blogging :)

Jorge said...

I've had to spend some time here Carrie just looking at all your wonderful shots. It's been a number of years since I was in Beautiful BC - we used to visit frequently when we lived near Calgary. Supernatural I think they used to call it (or maybe still do ?).

Like Arnie said, "I'll be back."

Scott said...

Thanks for such a wonderful assortment of photos. It was nice to visit. Thanks for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. I found your comment on the windmills interesting. I love the windmills. I think they are beautiful to look at and I love that we are using the wind to generate the power we so love to use. Hope to see you again often, and like Rick said above "I'll be back".
