I recently created a fun poster using a dog image from the X-Treme Air dog show at the state fair. I will be donating the proceeds of this image to Chase Away K9 Cancer. It got me wondering how many others use their art to raise money and awareness for their cause. I decided to host a contest on Fine Art America and make this the criteria for entry. The prizes would be promotion on my blog and social media pages.
I headed down to the Coos Bay/North Bend/Bandon area of the Oregon Coast a couple of days ago to escape the smoke-filled valley and maybe get some good pictures. I don’t get down this way very often. It’s just enough of a drive to make for a long day. I think I got some good shots, and I definitely drank some good coffee and enjoyed some beautiful scenery.
Our May trip to the Utah National Parks was filled with upward motion. This is a photo of the switchback “Walter’s Wiggles” on the way up to Angels Landing in Zion. Those little spots of color between the trees are people near the top of the switchback.
Props to these random strangers for posing for my photo. 🙂
I think I exceeded 20,000 steps on each day of this trip!
