I know it’s been a while, life had other plans, but today this photo had to be shared. I snapped it on my camera phone and Google Photos decided that it needed some styling. And honestly I like the result, hope you do too 🙂
Tonight’s winter sunset.
I’m not a mycologist, so I have no idea if this is good in a roast, puts me six feet under or help me seeing funny colours and shapes 🙂
Squeaks, repeated cold nose poking and vigorous wagging – bang, bang, bang – that rocks the bed. That is how I get woken up in the morning. It is either potty or hunger that wakes her up. Depending on how much the need is, I can delay it about 30 min, by lifting up the duvet, because she does like a cuddle and a lie in 🙂
Well let’s hope that we get a winter, though I do not mind the weather we have had. As that mean more riding my bike, just been beautiful and mild as of late. But I do miss a spot of snow, just about 2-3′ that hang around for a few weeks – five, six maybe eight or nine – and get topped up with a good old snow storm every now and again.
A frozen bench bench on the canal.
A happy dog is a wet dog. All we have to say is “Go, swim” and plop she is in the drink.

Night time on the canal in Skiptonia. Not a bad snap taken with my phone camera, a couple of taps on the screen and this came out 🙂
Not a bad sunset tonight and it didn’t turn out bad either for a phone snap.

It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from Celtic harvest festivals which may have pagan roots, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain, and that this festival was Christianized as Halloween. Some academics, however, support the view that Halloween began independently as a solely Christian holiday.
Today it was a mad day for weather and skies.
While out walking Tilley, it rained heavily, the clouds were shining orange and we had a massive double rainbow. I couldn’t get the phone out without soaking it or myself and hold still enough long enough, when I had a dog that soo needed to talk to the ducks on the canal. So you gotta believe me here 🙂
Seconds later the clouds cleared and blue skies appeared and a very fiery sunset was on display. Every second it changed as the sun sat and the clouds moved about. I was lucky to snap this one, since there was a post I could lean against and Tilley had no birds or other distractions that she had to look at.
If the weather is great when you are flying into Portland Oregon you can get this view of Mount Hood with what I believe to be Mount Jefferson in the background. please correct me if I’m wrong.
I was half asleep, as you would be if you just had 13 hours flight into Dallas and a two-hour turn around before the four and half hour flight to Portland, when I got poked in my ribs by Peli my partner-co-photograher showing me this great view.
Well worth the rude awaking I’ll say.
