Today’s Throwback Thursday photo goes back to November 3, 2009. A paraglider soars above the cliffs east of Maryhill, Washington, on a bluebird day. I thought this was worth the capture from a roadside viewpoint.

Dufur Thunderstorm


Every Thursday, I will post a photo from my collection for my Throwback Thursday. The images I select are from my archives of few ten thousand images. The photos are from 2000 through 2016. Occasionally, I may select a scanned print image to share. The collection is also viewed in the Throwback section in the Photo menu above.

Starting off the Throwback Thursday series is this photo of a lightning strike seen from Dufur, Oregon, along U.S. 197 on August 17, 2010. Lightning strikes are extremely challenging to capture. I do have a half-dozen images, but I chose this one as the car heading around the curve adds for a good element.
