Merganser Chase

September 12, 2014

I love watchin’ the mergansers chasing around.

And then, they’re off!

Cleared for takeoff!

The weather has been amazing (although we REALLY need some rain!) ¬†We’ve had upper 40’s at night and low 70’s during the day…great for anything outdoors!

Supermoon – Central Oregon Coast

September 8, 2014

The western sky looked mostly clear around 6pm so we decided to head to Waldport to see if we’d get a shot at the last Supermoon of 2014.

Maybe the Supermoon will rise right there?

Looks like there’s a very small window of opportunity on the eastern horizon.

I’m also watching the sunset over my shoulder…

Kayaking at Sunset in Alsea Bay

A couple kayakers were taking a sunset cruise but it was becoming evident that I would not see the supermoon from the Alsea Bay Bridge.

Back in Tidewater, the supermoon crept over the mountain at 9:10pm.
