In the second of two days of continuous rain (now day 3), I drove to the highest spot in Portland. I was inside a cloud. Not fog. Cloud.

Pacing a coin next to an object has been used for years in photography to provide a sense of actual size. We’ve got ourselves some slugs up here in Oregon. No size manipulation here. All I did was copy the one quarter I’d placed just to see how long this thing really was. Longer than a dollar bill.
The sky was above my house in Wichita. The field and trees were about 2 miles away. They were not shot in the same year. I do love my Photoshop.
The full frame has a walking bridge above, and a pool of water below. This is the coolest part of the whole thing. The back falls at top drop into a pool, which runs over the edge at center. The visual of the two combined creates an incredible visual tension. I figured since I had posted my urban waterfall shot earlier, it was time for this.
morning. a very good morning.
it started pretty. it got unpretty.

the fog came to the courts last night.
