Autumn Sunrise

I drove up to Ridgefield this morning and exited east of I-5 and drove down some country lanes looking for a nice spot to capture the sunrise.

Mt. St. Helens 

I might have enhanced these photos a bit :)

Mt. Hood

A rainbow of colors - Ridgefield

Can you see him?

This is why I officially declare it Autumn: my first Golden-crowned Sparrow of the season.

Common Yellowthroat?

Haven't seen Pintails in a while.

The lighting was amazing this morning!

  4. Aw, I miss seeing red-wing blackbirds...that does look like a female common yellowthroat, nice shot! They're pretty hard to capture. Great photos!
