Photography: Brodin Net Frames Trout’s Beauty

Brodin Nets

This beautiful trout more than filled the 20″ hoop opening of the Brodin Tailwater Ghost net. The fish was perfectly (randomly) framed by the opening of the net. Maybe Brodin would pay me for the promotional effort? 


The Bull…A Photograph in the Dark

I was recently traveling on a back road on the East side of Mt. Hood. It was about dark and the silhouette of the mountain against the fading light seemed to have possibilities for a photograph. I took a few shots. As I turned to enter the rig next to a fence line, I sensed movement beside me. I looked but could not gain my depth perception at first. When I did, a large, dark face stared at me. The passive face stayed that way as I snapped a shot. I messed with the exposure so you could enjoy the big guy’s head.

The shot of Mt. Hood on the East side. The shot didn’t turn out as I had envisioned.

The Bull chewing his grass. Not the best shot but still the chance meeting over a fence line at last light was ‘fun’. Being a city boy who escapes to the country for sanity, I am not familiar or at ease around car size critters.


Wagon Wheel Stopped Rollin’ Lush Green

Photography: I love photography. But, admittedly, I fall prey to the ‘Auto’ mode more often than not. So, I am not a true photographer concerned with f-stops and shutter speeds. I do experiment with it, but more with my macro work when photographing the fly patterns. So, I just snap and see (a new terminology and you can use it: S & S). I would prefer to take landscapes of scenic mountain ranges or meadows. For now my back yard was my meadow of sorts.

This old wagon wheel has leaned against this alder tree for at least sixteen years. It has never been treated, something I regret. So it sags ever so slightly, like I do, ever so slightly, as the years pass by. The lush green is the result of 14″ of rain the past few months (a record even for Portland) and I have been remiss in not getting out the vines that are encroaching upon the Iris, the Wheel and my wonderful clanging bell. The bell is situated where it only rings when the East wind howls down the Columbia River Gorge in the Winter. Right now it would never clang as the vines have their grip upon the bell’s clanger. I do need to get out there and cut things back a bit.
