Random photos from three countries, five gardens, one celestial event and one Instagram account.
The month started with a trip to the dahlia fields.
Smoke from forest fires in British Columbia and southern Oregon blanketed us much of August. (This is top of Mt Hood peeking out through the haze as I flew over the Columbia Gorge.)
With a side trip to England…
I came back home in time for the eclipse. While it was cool to watch it through the special glasses, I was taken by all the strange shadows. It was as if the sun was setting in the southeast.
Technically, this happened September 1, but I’m sneaking it in here. My oldest nephew had several of his portraits displayed in a gallery. He has such an eye, and I am so proud of him. You can check out his photos here.
Many more pictures, including a crazy amount of flower pictures, can be found at Instagram.com/loradow.
All pictures taken by me.
Some with my iPhone.
Most with a Nikon D3400.
