Weekly Photo Challenge: Serenity- Foggy Flight

Weather in the Portland, Oregon metro area is very foggy this morning… a perfect backdrop for Serenity.

The unique honking of Canada Geese in flight was muffled in the mist…

camera ready…

SERENITY… the state of being calm, peaceful, in untroubled flight.

Serenity… foggy flight


This Week’s Photo Challenge: “Serenity

    1. Tina, I was looking forward to your thought on this one because the settings were all manual and shot in RAW! All new experiences for me as I’m trying not to rely on the “automatic” feature and JPEG files of my D7100. I was a little over exposed because the geese came by when I was shooting fungi growing at the edge of the wetland, but Lightroom easily fixed that problem. Your excitement means a lot. Thank you ❤

    1. Ken-this reply is longer than you most likely expected…

      We do tend to have a rainy winter season, but temperatures in the Willamette Valley of Oregon tend to remain moderate year-round… not too cold in the winter and not too hot in the summer. There are days of snow and heat, however, those are tolerable because they come in small doses.

      As for the future, we will face problems created by climate change. Models predict:
      • Increase
 of
10‐15°
F
 in
 summer;
 3‐5°
F 
in
 winter

      • Changes 
in 
precipitation
 patterns

      • Warmer 
vegetation
 types
 favored

      • Higher
 intensity 
and
 increased
 distribution
 of
 fires

      • Significant
 loss
 of 
snowpack
 in 
the 
Cascades 
of
 about
80%

      • Higher 
stream
 runoff
 in
 winter 
and
 early
 spring
 and
decreased
 flows 
in 
summer
 for 
some
 locations

      I mention this because I believe we can make choices to help reduce carbon imprint and at least try to mitigate the speed of changes… this is a whole other conversation though. I think this is on my mind because local and national news here ran stories about climate change this evening (as they should more often!).

      1. Oh, Jane, you have excelled. Certainly longer reply than I expected, but you have dispelled my misconceptions. I thought you probably had to shovel snow for months as did people I met in northern Minnesota. Still not quite like Sydney’s 55-60F midday in our winter. If we get more than two frosts it is a cold winter!!! Cheers, Ken

  1. Whenever I hear these geese honking above us in our area, I have to stop and look up to watch them fly over, whether a foggy or clear day 🙂
