Oregon did its impression of Alaska yesterday and was blanketed in snow. The above photo is of Fern Ridge Rd., looking east. Highway 22 bisects the image (behind the stop sign), but it’s not visible beyond that little line. The field to the left of that car on the hill is part of Etzel Farm. It’s [...]

Guest photographer John Brandt caught this cool (and cold) scene in Wilderness Park recently. His description: Taken at the pond on the east end of Wilderness Park. The pond is an old gravel extraction barrow pit. I was told it had been operated by one of the Staytons. I think his name was Cliff [...]
Guest photographer Tom Miller took today’s lovely image of Gilkey Bridge, also known as Thomas Creek Bridge, which span Thomas Creek near Scio. It was built in 1939, and looks quite a bit like the Jordan Bridge here in Stayton. Very pretty. Thanks, Tom!
I managed to go out for a few minutes yesterday to take a few photos, including the one above. I was wandering around the neighborhood across from Bi-Mart on Shaff Rd., and noticed this pond-like bit of water in the middle of some construction. I don’t know if that water is temporary due to the [...]
I thought this house on Mountain Dr. looked rather pretty a few nights ago, so here’s a picture of this house on Mountain Dr. looking rather pretty. A call for guest photographers! This week’s weather is supposed to be pretty bad, which means I likely will be unable to go out and take pictures. So [...]
The Gardner House Cafe on 3rd Ave. was looking pretty and festive a couple of nights ago. It’s hard to believe it’s already time for Christmas lights. Anyone want to come over to my house and put my decorations out?
Guest photographer Melissa caught this lovely moonrise over a pond on Cascade Highway recently. Her description: I took this photo somewhere close to a month ago now after coming home from work. The sun was setting as the moon was rising and it was just stunning. I hurried home and managed to stop [...]
This creative bit of advertising made me smile when I saw it last Saturday. It certainly gets the point across.
We have another awesome rural scene from guest photographer Tom Miller. Thanks, Tom! Attention Google+ and Twitter Users I finally created a Google+ page for this site, if anyone is interested. It will have each day’s posts automatically posted there as links, just like the Facebook page. Please [...]
Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it! And happy day to everyone in general. I swear I wasn’t going to post another sunset photo today, but then the above happened last night, so I kinda had to change my mind. Blame nature.
Yes, another sunset. Because sunsets are pretty, and it’s what I have to post so I’m posting it. This was taken at St. Mary’s Cemetery on 3rd Ave.
These shoes were hanging from the power lines over W. Hollister St. a few days ago. As you can see, the sole of one of the shoes is dangling down, which left the shoes with a sole sole. So sad. It’s a loss I can feel down in my soul, and they weren’t even my shoes. I posted another photo of shoes [...]
We have another set of “then and now” images for today (see also: Etzel farm — then and now)! Terri Jo Adams, who volunteers at the Santiam Historical Museum, found this old undated photo (top) of the water tower on E. Regis St. Since there’s no date, it makes me wonder how long that star has been [
Guest photographer Tom Miller just has a knack for finding old abandoned houses and then taking very cool photos of them. This is one such house he found near Scio. Thanks, Tom!
This is a bit of the sunset last night. I took the photo at St. Mary’s Cemetery, because frequent guest photographer Terri Jo Adams was concerned all the fog photos I’d been posting had maybe kinda sorta fried my brain a little. There is a slight chance she might be kinda sorta right.
Trees! And fog! Trees in the fog! Douglas-fir trees in the fog! And a little yellow tree, also in the fog! Douglas-fir trees and a little yellow tree in the fog at Pioneer Park! The little tree likely isn’t yellow anymore, though, since I took this a week and a half ago. So sad.
Guest photographer Tom Miller decided to contribute to my recent rash of fog photos with his own foggy photo of St. Boniface Church in nearby Sublimity. And a fine photo it is. Thanks, Tom!
Here’s a photo of that pedestrian bridge off of Florence St., right next to the trees I posted yesterday. I posted a similar photo of the bridge a couple of years ago, but today’s photo has fog so it’s totally different.
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “I really should work out more.” Sure, but what’s that have to do with today’s photo? Nothing. You’re not very helpful at the moment. Here’s what you should be thinking: “Hey, Celine posted yet another fog photo! This is so e
This is the bridge spanning the Santiam River just south of town, by the boat launch ramp next to the sand and gravel place. Yup, a bridge. And it was foggy. And I took a picture. And posted it here. And that’s all.
Yesterday I attended a memorial service for my second grade teacher, a lifelong family friend, and an all around amazing woman, Marg Limbocker. As I was leaving the church, I found this leaf on the ground, and it reminded me of her — unique, colorful, and memorable. She made a big impact in my [...]
Here’s another photo from our very foggy Monday, this time some of the oak trees on the street which runs beside/behind the hospital off of 10th Ave. I still miss the second tree which used to be by the big one (here’s one shot of them in happier times).
This raindrop-filled spider web was hanging from the railing on the south end of 4th Ave., near a big red barn. That barn and its reflection in the water below the railing is refracted in the water drops. I would claim I did all that on purpose, but the truth is I stuck my camera with its macro [...]
Here’s another photo from the very foggy Monday we had here in Stayton. This is one of the small bits of water near the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. Fog has a way of making things look ethereal. Or maybe I’ve just seen too man movies.
Monday was very foggy, so I took the opportunity to go around town to get as many photos as I could. I took this one at the boat launch along the Santiam River just south of town, next to the sand and gravel place. This is actually over-exposed, as I was taking bracketed exposures (normal, 2 [...]
About a week ago I posted a photo of some tree trunks with scattered leaves around them. The leaves on the trees finally turned this beautiful yellow, so here’s another shot of them. These trees live along Shaff Rd., across from Bi-Mart.
Today is Veterans Day here in the United States, so here’s a small tribute to those who serve in our military, and to those who have served. All of you are amazing.
Guest photographer Tom Miller sent in these two lovely photos (click on the thumbnail at right to see the other one full size) of the Larwood Covered Bridge, which spans Crabtree Creek near Scio. Just a bit to the right of where these photos were taken is where the Roaring River flows into the [...]
Guest photographer Jeremy Hedrick captured this gorgeous photo of a foggy sunrise over the Santiam River on a recent morning. So beautiful! Thanks, Jeremy.
I had originally intended to post a guest photographer image today, but I happened to see the scene above yesterday, so I took a picture. That’s a pretty big dark cloud right there, and I half expected it to start pouring on me any second. It didn’t do that, thankfully. This is a mobile phone [...]
