I haven’t played along with Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge in a while. This week’s challenge looks pretty easy – anything with “O” in it. (Next week’s will take some more thought and planning.) Here are my choices:
It was nice to go back through some old shots for this week’s challenge – open topic.
Thanks for the challenge, Cee!
I was drawn to the sharp outlines of the canoe against the softly rippling water and wavy clouds and mountain outline.

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge this week is to take pictures of things in twos. Here are my entries. Click on any picture to see them in slide show format. Thanks for visiting.
Here are my offerings for Cee’s B&W photo challenge of the week – sepia. There are about a dozen photos here. (I had a hard time narrowing them down.) I hope you enjoy them.
For Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge, I had to dig back into the archives (okay, so only a couple of years) to find this photo I took at Pioneer Place during the holidays. The mall is three stories tall with a skylight roof, and hanging over the escalator were these silver balls. I just had to take a B&W. If you look closely, you may be able to see me. 🙂
Opal Creek is a preserved natural area near Detroit Lake, Oregon. It was saved from logging in a contentious battle in the 1990s. The hike is about 7 miles to the pool and back, although much of it is on an old road, which is accessible by mountain bike. The road leads to Jawbone Flats, a small community of people who study the forest, and from there branches off into trails into the wilderness. The trail to Opal Pool is beautiful, and the loop that leads partway back down the other side of the creek is gorgeous old growth forest carpeted by moss and ferns.
We didn’t anticipate the ice, and it made the path a bit treacherous, but the pool with icicles hanging over it was stunning!
