I went on a writers’ retreat this weekend with four other women writers. We stayed in a house in Neskowin, which is a charming little town on the Oregon coast near Lincoln City.
The location was fitting, since the suspense novel I’m working on is set on the Oregon coast. The book is about murder, miracles and overcoming grief.
Between spurts of writing, I took my camera for a walk — on the beach, along the road into the village and along the tsunami evacuation path. I got some nice photos. I’ll be sharing several at my photography blog: CahillPhotojournalism.com.
Along the narrow roadway, I came upon a few of these little chestnut chickadees feeding upside down in a small tree. I’m not sure if they were feeding on seeds, pollen or insects. But it was great fun to watch them and a challenge to photograph them as they flitted from branch to branch.
This shot is one of my favorites – it’s blurry and out of focus, but I like the otherworldly quality of it. The tiny bird’s wings look almost angel-like, don’t they?
