This week on Instagram featured another fun set.

This first one is from the eclipse.  Even with most of the sun obscured like this, it was nearly full daylight out.  It just goes to show how bright the sun really is!

Next is a shot from our Alaskan train ride.  Such a wonderful way to take in all that stunning scenery!  And I loved the reflection of the train from this angle.  You can read all about that journey here.

This next one hits home – literally.  The northwest has been battling a number of wildfires in this dry season, and many of our favorite hiking trails have burned.  We’re all anxious for some rain.  This was from my response to this week’s challenge, “waiting.”

This was the view from our secret cliff discovery.  The arches in that area are really interesting to photograph, and it was so cool to have the whole place to ourselves.

Here’s another from Yosemite.  I am in love with this park – the waterfalls, the rainbows, even the snows – and I only saw a small fraction!  I’ll definitely be returning for some proper hiking.

It was hard to decide which was my favorite between these last two.  I’m sad about the wildfires ravaging our Gorge, but the smoke did make for some fascinating pictures.  I tried for a different crop on this one; what do you think?

And finally, this was my submission for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness last week.  I love the symmetry of the rows and rows of trees and the asymmetry of the lone tree that didn’t quite grow straight.  It reminds me that it’s beautiful to be unique.
