Special Moments in Black and White

Here is my entry for Tina of Lens-Artists Photo A Week Challenge with the topic of Special Moments. This is also my entry for Sunday Stills Challenge with the #Black and White.

This first photo is of a hummingbird I captured at Swan Island Dahlias. A white van was parked sideways letting of passengers, and the hummingbird was feeding off these flowers. The van gave a perfect background. I’m not around hummingbirds that often, so I was excited to get this photo.

This American Bald Eagle I was able to capture at Northwest Trek in Tacoma, Washington. It seemed like I had a wonderful moment with this beautiful creature.

Chris and I were lucky enough to go on a private tour at an elk farm in Molalla, Oregon.

I go to the dahlia farm here in Canby, Oregon often, but after a year of isolation and fires during the dahlia season, it makes all the time over the years I spent at these fields seem all that more precious.

It was a foggy magical day, when Chris I went to Cathedral Park in Portland, Oregon. The bridge abutment is part of St. John’s Bridge.

Chris and I have had many magical moments at the beach, especially at D River beach in Lincoln City, Oregon. Seeing hundreds of seagulls feeding on the beach and then all of a sudden, they all take off at the time time is a spectacular sight.

I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

  1. The hummingbird photo is beautiful, Cee. Last summer, I sat by my front window for about 2 weeks trying to photograph the hummingbird that visited my garden several times a day. Finally got a few shots, but not as good as yours.


  2. I too find moments like these to be very special Cee. Loved your hummingbird – how nice of the van to be your background!. Also loved your eagle image. Good heavens, how close WERE you for that one?! Your B&W is a lovely choice for the week.


    • The eagles had an open feeding area and they were being fed at the time. So he was quite happy to pose after eating. I was fairly close, but did have my 300mm lens on 😀

  3. Wow, Cee – truly enigmatic captures! B&W is stunning in all of these. Love the hummingbird and the eagle, the dahlia, the …all of them. Fantastic!


  4. What gorgeous photos, Cee. The St. John’s bridge from that angle engulfed in fog – spectacular. Mr. Elk looks like he needs some help scrubbing his antlers. Little bit of a slob! 🙂
