Photography: Snowed In…………

dense snow swittersb12 08It has been five years since we had a significant snow fall in Portland, Oregon. We are due. This photograph from December 2008 was from the last heavy show fall we had. The snow against the few remaining orange berries on the Russian Sea Berry Tree is a pleasant contrast.

Morning Snow SwittersBThis was in the morning that year. It continued to snow quite a bit more the next several days. The East wind down the Columbia Gorge makes for more drifting snow than for straight down, snow fall accumulations in my neighborhood.

But, on the rare occasions that we get enough to shut down the town..it doesn’t take much around here..I like the beauty. We are blessed here in the Portland area with the Cascade Mountain Range, so snow is readily available should I have the urge to fall down and make a snow angel at my age. Maybe the grand kids would be better suited for that.

    I’d like to get permission to use a photo of a Callibaetis dun that I found on your web site in an article I’m writing for a conservation magazine on the proper use of common and scientific names of insects by anglers and authors.

    Can’t seem to find an email address for you, so hope this reaches someone who can respond.
