I have set up this site as a means to share my photographs of lighthouses. Since retiring and finding more time to study photography, my interests have expanded a little. For some of my work other than lighthouses please enjoy my Facebook page at, John Shaw Photography. Come visit, enjoy, and 'LIKE' if you wish.

Also, for your enjoyment, I have provided a slideshow of our journey. To view it please use the link on the right under 'Site Navigation Tools'.

I sincerely hope you enjoy my efforts and use my site not only for information and education but also to provide directions for many enjoyable, inspirational visits to the beacons along our beautiful coas.

Early Spring Wild Flowers From Eastern Oregon

     During an early April trip to visit our daughter's family we spent one entire day exploring wildflowers and waterfalls.  Below is a selection of the flowers we found.  I hope they bring a little warmth into your chilly spring.  Enjoy!

  1. This are very beautiful flowers, John Shaw, esp. the first one. We have forsythia, quince, and some of the flowering ornamental trees out now. Spring is such a lovely time of year! Thank you for sharing your photos!
