Photo Blogging Challenge - Water

I'm linking up for the first time to a blog hop at A 'lil HooHaa.  It is Photo Blogging Challenge -Water.  At the beginning of each month there is a new challenge.  The last day of the month we are supposed to post five photographs we have taken during the month that interpret the theme.

Here are my five interpretations.

    Wonderful fall pictures, I especially like the maple leaf on your windshield.

    1. Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. Oregon is my home, so I get to "vacation" from the cares of the world at this place quite regularly.

  3. The creek and marsh pictures are probably my favorite out of all of these. They are so tranquil and are framed beautifully!

  6. What great photos for your first time posting! The two photos of the refuge. The layers of color in the Egret Marsh one is especially beautiful.

  7. Welcome to the PBC! Happy for a morning armchair visit to Oregon and the intro to the NWR (so glad you spelled that out in the caption for one of your photos. We don't have National Wildlife Reserves here in Canada so I was guessing for a half a minute). You composed some beautiful images of the marshes and wetlands. My imagination provided some background birdsong for the perfect finishing touch. :-)
