Happy Friday, and welcome to almost the last post of the year!  I still have one more weekly challenge for this year, but this is the last full week.  Do you like these Instagram reviews?

This first image was from our cliffside discovery on the Oregon coast.  We were so awed by this day, and I can’t wait to discover similar secrets of the Oregon shoreline.

Happy Friday once more!  Today kicks off Day 1 of my favorite convention, Kumoricon!  Look forward to many pictures from that coming soon.  For now, I should probably be shooting a panel….

I wanted to try something different this week, so I experimented with grid photos!  The idea is that each tile can stand on its own as a photo, but when put together, a larger picture is formed.  This was fun, and while it took considerably more time to organize and plan out my posts, I’m really happy with the result.  Let me know what you think!

This first one was quite simple.  This was from my post this week on my very first bush plane.  As you can tell, these planes are itty bitty!  Read all about that adventure here.

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!  I don’t have any spooky images for you this week, but it’s still a good day!  Historically, Friday the 13ths have always been good days for me; it’s Monday the 13ths I need to watch out for!  It’s October, Halloween is just around the corner (I sort of have a thing for costumes), and autumn is in the air! It is a good day!

Now, to the images from this week on Instagram!

This first one was from our adventure to Alaska.  This was from the train up to Denali.  Look for bear pictures coming to my site in the next few weeks!

I like the variety in this week’s set.

First is a shot from outside the Eielson Visitor Center in Denali National Park.  I missed this on our first stop into the park, so I was determined to check it out on our way out.  Evidently, these two massive moose got locked in a battle – literally.  Unable to disentangle their antlers, they both died in the grass.  A backpacker later found the skeletons and brought them back to the park officials.  Now they’re on display for all to see.

This was also my submission for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness.
