GPTR 2012

Written by CooKies™. Posted in Work Related

22nd August, Wednesday. Today we have our annual big event here: GPTR (Great Place to Run)! Again, I signed up for the 5K run like last year. However, due to having cold and not yet fully recover, I can’t really participate in the run. 🙁 So, instead of doing the run, I basically just go there for a walk and take some photos.


Chasing Milky Way

Nice angle with milky way on top, but too bad not enough range17th of August, Friday. Tonight after having dinner with my boss from Penang, I decided to go Trillium Lake for another try of night photography. 🙂 Since my last visit, I always wanted to do more night photography, especially with milky way. So, without thinking twice, I packed my stuff and headed there straight away!


I felt ‘Penang’ here…

Too hot for us!16th August, 2012. Thursday. I’ve been here in Oregon for a year and 9 months. But these whole week is a remarkable one. Why? Because just today, our temperature hits 97Fahrenheit (around 36 celsius)!

A Night in Trillium Lake

13th of July, Friday. After last week’s experience on shooting stars, tonight I decided to go somewhere far away from city: Trillium Lake. 🙂 It’s almost a 2hour drive from my house, but since the weather is so nice, I should be able to get some good shots there.


Starry Starry Night

6th of July, Friday. Feeling fresh even though it’s late night. In fact I was planning for a midnight stars shooting around Hillsboro. I never did this before. But just wanted to give it a try. This is what I got after standing for an hour in the midnight at some ‘unknown’ location around Old Cornelius Pass Road in Hillsboro. 🙂
