I originally had no intention of entering the Picture This Contest hosted by Gardening Gone Wild this month.
Being the ultra-novice photographer that I am,
taking a photo featuring an artist's eye for lighting
seemed more like a shot in the dark.
Inspired by some recent entries by other bloggers, though, I thought I'd look through my picture files to see if I could find something remotely worthy of an entry.
Here are some pictures I took on one of our trips to Oregon.
A spectacular sunset over the hills surrounding the Willamette Valley
This is my aunt's bed & breakfast in the hills overlooking
the Willamette Valley.
The rolling hills of vineyards are aglow in the autumn light.
The Japanese Gardens of Portland are a must-see
for any visit to the Pacific Northwest.
I love how the light is filtering through the Japanese Maples
causing their reflection in the pond below.
Visit the contest gallery page to see which photo I entered.
