Rushing Waters and Steadfast Stones

Rushing Waters and Steadfast Stones

Great title for a great set! It’s the 3rd Wednesday and we’re celebrating that greenest of all events with a bunch of rocks and waves. You’ll find some gorgeous shots of the Oregon Coast, including hand colored postcards like this one with sea side “activity” in Seaside:

and this placid water on Cannon Beach:

Want to see some falls?

Or some blue?

Or maybe just a lighthouse or two?

Enjoy! And for those of you wanting a hit of Ireland, check out the Flickr set we released last year of Ralph Gifford’s Whiddy Island images.

Dams & Mills

Dams & mills … Mills & dams …

Our newest set in Flickr Commons is chock full of amazing shots of both!

In addition to wonderfully dramatic shots of rushing (and trickling) water, the pictures found in this set show you the range of products process in Oregon, as well as the diversity of landscape. From mills in Bend to waterways in the Willamette Valley, we hope you enjoy each one. Personally, I love the “Olalla mining dam,” “Scotts Mills,” “Salem Flouring Mills,” “Forest Lumber Company mill near Chiloquin,” and the “Yamhill Locks near Lafayette.”

And while you are there, make sure to check out University of Washington’s photostream! It’s true, we’ve formed our own Pac-2.
