I am someone who enjoys taking photos, my subjects are random, from bugs to babies. Photography is therapy for me, I have no real knowledge of the art, I am learning a bit here and there. I use an inexpensive camera.I simply love taking shots of interesting or beautiful things I see. I love the adventure of attempting to get the perfect shot. Please enjoy these photos and share them with your friends. For me the ultimate success is knowing someone may be amazed or made to smile.

CLICKING ON EACH PICTURE WILL ENLARGE THEM.

  1. Beautiful...though I am not very fond of dunes as I do not like sand creeping into my shoes...I like these pictures, very tranquil.

  2. I lived on a dune for awhile. Believe it is not only your shoes it creeps into. It is nice to visit sometimes tho'. Thank you.

  3. Jan, I really enjoyed these photo's...they are very representative of the echo system of the Pacific Northwest...and I am a beach and ocean girl..unlike Janu..I love to take my shoes off and walk in the sand and feel the ocean mist on my face. These photo's have that feel..a place of solitude, with only your thoughts and the sound of the ocean in your ears..love the colour tones. Well done.

  7. I enjoy taking my shoes off and walking in the shallow surf; I hold many precious memories of Erin and myself romping through the water. Lovely pics!! Somehow I never associated Oregon with dunes, the first thing that comes to mind is luscious green forests with majestic trees. Thanks for sharing!! :)

  8. Raven, Thank you, being raised here in the northwest and on the coast I find so much of my peace and strength there. I have to visit several times a year. The mountains too with the wind in the old growth fir and redwoods. I don't think I could live anywhere else. Thank you for looking at these and I am glad you enjoyed.
    @ Jim, the dunes are a wonder. thanks for sstopping by.

  11. Great shots Jan! I've never been to a place like this outside of a beach, and that has been seldom. Love the photos though :)

  12. These are great photos Jan. Where are the dune buggies? I often look at photos of dunes and picture movies with dunes in them. I'd name a few but, they seemed to have slipped my mind at the moment.

  13. The dune buggies are in a different area, bigger better dunes. I prefer to pretend I am far away from all civilization when I go to the beach. The sound of roaring buggies and screaming young men is just not my cup of tea.lol. Thanks for stopping in.

  14. This is beautiful - stark and yet one can be so inspired to go inward. Thanks, Jan.

  15. I have never seen a dune, Jan. Thanks for showing me pictures. Well, the first picture resembles the hairstyles of some of my students.

    Loved the different perspectives here.

    Joy and peace,
    Susan
