Herons, turbines, Rehoboth signs, northwest trees

I made this photograph while looking up toward the tops of some soaring Sequoias or Douglas Firs in an arboretum in Portland, Oregon back in September.  Walking among these huge trees makes me feel like a character in a the Lord of the Rings.  Frodo and Rivendell and Bilbo Baggins and that happy lot.

2 DECEMBER 2011 • END OF THE WEEK

November's wings were swift. December's days are short. We're still about 10 inches behind on rain and ducks and geese really haven't moved down in any great numbers yet.  Mild weather.

Here are some photos I've been sitting on for a while.  They all struck me either for their interest or beauty.

We're only a few weeks away from the solstice now and then the days will begin lengthening again.  In the mean time we'll be enjoying Christmas and the parade season.
