Tips from Cee

I have recently started a Tips from Cee’s page, you many want to check it out every once in awhile.  You may pick up an idea or two for your own photography.

My entry for this week

The Astoria Column is a tower overlooking the mouth of the Columbia River on Coxcomb Hill in the city of Astoria in the U.S. state of Oregon. Built in 1926, the concrete and steel structure is part of a 30-acre (12-hectare) city park. The 125-foot (38 m)-tall column has a 164-step spiral staircase ascending to an observation deck at the top and was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 2, 1974.

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.

Qi (energy) hugs

  1. Fantastic shots, Cee 👏 Love the perspective looking almost straight up & the view in the last is spectacular (is that the scary bridge?) 😃 Thank you so much for featuring my last post 😊

  2. That is an amazing tower, Cee. It’s been so long since I was in Astoria, I don’t remember ever seeing it. But it’s huge. How could I have missed it! The top part reminds me a little of the lookout over the Columbia near Multnomah Falls. I forget the name of it. 🙂

  3. Sacramento hosts a street art festival each summer they call Wide Open Walls 916. I’ve posted a lot of murals from this festival. It’s been a great way to keep active during COVID lockdown while safely keeping distance.

    Enjoy!
