A Thankful Happy Birthday

This is just a quick post to let everyone know that, yes, this blog is alive and, yes, there are posts forthcoming. In the meantime, I want to acknowledge that this past week was 153rd birthday of the State of Oregon, a place that I proudly call home.

It so happens that Oregon and I share a birthweek, and we always celebrate together with local wine, beer and good food. I always get a little anxious around this time of year, because we’re just about a month away from the early blooms and the subsequent explosion of spring that make me and my camera (though not necessarily my sinuses) extremely happy. March is usually when I dust of my camera and get back to taking pictures, but some years I get ambitious and bring the camera out in the snow. Here’s a shot from 2007 that, I think, approaches doing justice to the magnificent beauty of one of this state’s gems, Crater Lake.

Happy Birthday, Oregon!
