Something New: Thursday’s Children – Writing Inspiration

I’m trying something new this week. I’m joining Thursday’s Children, a writing inspiration blog hop.


I just got back from a camping trip through the Olympic Peninsula and down the Oregon Coast through the National Forests and the Northern California Redwoods to Lake Mendocino. I’d like to share some inspirational photos today (post is image-heavy).

Tree Monster

Somehow, in the Redwoods, I kept seeing monsters in the trees.

Redwoods have such amazing texture:


Driftwood too:

Unfortunately, all I had with me was a camera phone, so the quality of some of my images is sub-par, but you can still see what’s there. I think this one was called “Big Tree.”

If you have a coastal scene, maybe this will inspire you:

Hidden Coast

Maybe the dunes are more your setting:

One night we camped in the middle of a clear-cut. It was incredibly peaceful, but kind of sad. Easy to leave no trace, though.

Like sunsets?

If you’d like to see the entire album of inspiring photos (all 133 of them), they can be found on google+ here.

  1. So happy you joined us this week! Nature often inspires me, and I adore the ocean most of all. I’m an East Coast girl born and bred but those are absolutely gorgeous photos and make me want to visit. (p.s. I’ve also done TC posts about the beach and trees and other miracles of the natural world).

    1. I was planning on posting the pictures, so it worked out well. I’ll just have to come up with good things for future posts!

  2. Wow, that driftwood is awesome! Those are some great pictures, fantastic inspiration since my WiP is actually set in a creepy (fictional) town in Oregon.

  3. I love love love nature photography, and nature in general. The only way I can think of to describe it is that my eyes get so thirsty for the beauty I’m seeing that I can’t stop staring around, drinking everything up. (I realise how hokey that sounds!)

    1. I totally get what you mean. I walked so slowly on the Hoh Rainforest “Hall of Moss” trail, I think my husband was practically dragging me in places. 🙂
