Astoria Mood

Last week I was fortunate to spend some time in Astoria, Oregon.  It’s a small port town on the Columbia River, near the Pacific Ocean.  It’s a great place for great views, and here are a few that caught my eye:

May you enjoy the sights around you this week!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunrise/Sunset

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to participate in a weekly photo challenge, so I’m happy to have had a few moments today to find these sunset captures to share with you.

In February, I took a few days of quiet retreat in Astoria, Oregon.  Astoria is a fishing port sitting on the mouth of the Columbia River near the Pacific Ocean.  It has a great downtown for shopping as well as a boardwalk right on the river.  These pictures were taken at the end of a peaceful and reflective evening walk – with peace and reflection being the essence of “sunset” to me.
