Wild Fire

Wild Fire by Natalie Mikaels

Where has the summer gone? I'm sure you can relate to this feeling...I mean, it seems like last week that the weather just started changing to warmer temperatures and summer vacations were being planned. It is now the end of August and Autumn is just around the corner. In the spirit of autumn, I thought I would post this image that I took in Oregon at the Portland Japanese Gardens. Although this image was taken in mid-June, the orange and red leaves certainly suggest fall. This image won the photo contest for July 13th, and is proving to be one of my more popular images. I hope you enjoy it as well!

I've succumbed to the social media craze known as Pinterest...yes, I couldn't resist. For the longest time, I ignored this hot trend among the social networking sites. Not because I have anything against social media, but simply because I assumed it was the same type of website as Facebook and Twitter. Out of curiosity, I checked it out. The end result...I'm hooked. Pinterest is a very different concept, and one that 'visually inclined' people would find extremely compelling. Pinterest is a virtual pinboard that allows you to search through millions of interesting "pins", in the form of high quality photographs, and pin them to boards that you can create. I've added a "Pinterest" button to the top of my blog page. Please give it a click and follow my boards. I'm creating some interesting boards that compile really cool photography and other topics.

Lastly, I had the opportunity to go on a few photography expeditions this summer...traveled to the north pacific and Minnesota, where I captured some pretty unique images. Check out my website to view my latest work

Best wishes,
