Show Your Snaps...May 14, 2012
May 14, 2012

We invite you again to show your own snapshots or even choice pictures. Remember it's all about the enjoyment of taking pictures regardless of what we have. We can learn from each other and it's fun to share too.

This past Saturday, it was time for another hike. This time I went back to Ecola State Park along the coast. I've been there many times, so I didn't expect a lot of different things to photograph. But I did see a volleyball game from the heights of a hillside above, so that gave me a new perspective of how it would be viewed that way.

We will start a new thread for this every week now due to the popularity. I'll be sure to comment also to your images, if you choose to share. Thanks everyone for your participation.

Photo No. 1 - This is where I started my hike. This is looking south towards Cannon Beach. I will be walking in the opposite direction, north along our coastline.

Photo No. 2 - Walking along the trail, I'm always impressed with the beautiful scenery.

Photo No. 3 - There's a lot of wind damaged trees along our coastline, but this appears to have been caused by fire. That's a little unusual at this very wet area, unless the fire was intentionally or carelessly set. We don't get a lot of fire producing lightning here either.

Photo No. 4 - I liked this one showing the lighthouse out at sea.

Photo No. 5 - My destination is Indian Beach. I'm about half way there at this point.

Photo No. 6 - As I walk north, I turn around and take this photo looking south.

Photo No. 7 - Here's Indian Beach.

Photo No. 8 - Below at Indian Beach we see a volleyball game going on. At the focal length I chose, I think this is close to what I actually saw. Being that high up, it wasn't the safest place I've taken photographs.

Photo No. 9 - I was able to get some closeup pictures with the nifty 250.

Photo No. 10 - Here's one more of the action. I have lots of these pictures. I was fascinated by the perspective I was getting. I have taken lots of pictures at beach volleyball games, but none like this from the top of a hillside.
