Peace On Earth

Newer Older

One of the highways leading to the Oregon Coast from the Portland Metro area is Highway 26. All along this stretch are several rivers, creeks, and lakes. There are so many different creeks I can’t keep up with all of the names. Here is one of my favorite places to stop on my way to Seaside (Or on my way back from). I have no idea what the name of this creek is.

    Oooo. Looks like the Bottomless Lake that used to scare us as kids.
    And now that I've read about the dead car salesman buried here, I'm still kind of scared.
    Have you ever seen a blacker lake? But the surroundings...beautiful.

    This is what I call still water
    I bet this is also one of the most silent places around, isn't it?
    My favorite part are the leaves at the bottom of the creek, or are they floating?
    Peace on Earth, my friend

    I don't think I'd be stopping by this little pond in the Spring or early Summer. Not unless you have a fondness for little bity bugs. Yikes. But November looks just right. But it does sort of remind me of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon", just a little bit. Put "Night" on that list of times I wouldn't want to visit this place.

    It is beautiful the way the trees kind of lean over the little lake. And the dark greens are awesome. I think this lake deserves a name, don't you? How about "Squee Lake"? :-)

    Oregon is awesome! I only lived in bend from 1977 to 1981 but it left a huge impact on me.

    Gorgeous light and composition of this pond, Kurt. This kind of reminds me of where one would go in an epic journey. Akin to Lord of the Rings, where you would find an ent. I'm revealing too much...
    Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

    Peaceful, indeed! Cool subtle diagonal - the bank arc rising to meet the fallen moss covered trunk, leading the eye directly to that warm yellow glow of leaves. Looks like you weren't alone there - is that a reflection of angel wings? ;- )
