Glad to have you visit Mountain Meadows Photographs. I hope you enjoy my view of nature. I am not one for a lot of words, so it is mostly photographs.

Unless noted all of the photographs are my original work.

North to Alaska - Days Twelve and Thirteen - Oregon Coast

For the next two days we made a whirlwind trip down the Oregon Coast.  I could have spent two weeks on the coast, but we did a lot in the short time we were there.

North to Alaska - Day Nine - Victoria, Canada

On day nine we made our final stop in Victoria, Canada.  This was an evening stop.  Earlier in the day I noticed my camera battery was low and I put it in the charger.  When we got off the ship I had my camera, but the battery was still in the cabin.  The photos taken at Buchart Gardens were done with my wife's point and shoot.  It did a nice job.  The weakness came in the low light situations.
