Oysterville is more than parking lots and oyster middens. Here's a shot of some old cedars.

One of the beautiful period style home in Oysterville framed by some of those famous cedars. A very placid place.

One of the picture book homes in Oysterville. It looks like the owner has taken a break from their gardening chores but left their pail behind. And a nice yellow house with a stoop just right for summer sitting.

The greens just really pop in the second shot. Just lovely.

Could not shoot moon tonight, and while outside Mom's garden angel caught my eye.

It is lit by a solar powered LED luminary, and to a lesser extent, our yard lamp, and a street light a half block away.

Original photo had a slight greenish tinge. Since the angel is grey, a click of camera raw's white balance tool restored things pretty well.

Q7 & 06 Lens, orignal crop (downsized here) is 9.45MP.

Oysterville redux

This small and relatively old community also has the distinction of having started out pretty isolated. But even though it was isolated it was a group of like-minded people. To wit: just one church. I guess you either attended that one or went to join the damned. It is open to the public on most days. Fortunately vandals are too lazy to drive out this far to desecrate church property. The town has somewhat the air of being its own reality. I'll make a trip back if we ever get some days with sunshine.

Fish were jumping, waterfowls were slowly and smoothly gliding on the water, some pelicans and nighthawks and other birds flew past, but everything was really peaceful (except some mosquito ).
Q7 with 08 lens, pano stitch of probably 150 degrees or so horizontally.

Nice series of an interesting historical town. I agree with Trey45, beautiful green!
