Over all we had a good summer, Didn't get to all the places we had planned on but those are at the top of our list for next Spring/Summer, plus I have some places I want to go back to as well as some places to check out over in the Silver Lake/Christmas Valley area that my Dad told me about recently.
Sometime in December I will be doing my Best of post with the Best shots of the year, I've shot so much that I have a feeling it is going to be a difficult task deciding which shots to choose, but it will be fun going back through all the pics either way.
This past week was peak colors for fall pictures, so Friday I headed up to Washington Park to the Japanese Gardens, got some pretty good shots despite it being crowded and having to be patient which I tend to not be LOL.
My RA is starting to act up some, but I think that has a lot to do with the weather turning to cool and damp at night, the days here in NW Oregon are still warm and sunny, highs in the mid 60's to maybe 70 or 75, however that is going to be changing by the end of this week when rumor has it the snow level will be dropping to around 2500' feet and our daytime high here will drop to around mid 40's and be rainy.
Based on what I am reading in the local weather group, I have a feeling this will be a long cold winter with some awesome storms, hopefully I'll get out to the coast to shoot at least one good storm.
Anyway, Here are a few shots I got Friday up at the Japanese Gardens.
