Scenic photo of the week

Rainbow Over the Port of Tacoma, Dawn Spiker, Resource Specialist Teacher, Hansen Elementary School

Last week we encouraged OSD employees to send us a photo of their artwork portraying nature (e.g., landscapes, sunrises or sunsets, an interesting cloud formation, a close-up of a flower – the possibilities are endless) for consideration in this staff blog. We have already received several entries and will feature a new one every week. Your image could be something you captured on canvas, in a photograph, on a textile, in a pencil, charcoal or pastel drawing, with wire, etc.


  • Nature/scenic images only (no people or pets please).
  • Attach a photo of your original art in jpeg or png format to an email and send to The higher the resolution, the better.
  • Photos must be in-focus and cropped so the art is visible.
  • Include your name, title, work location, and if applicable, where the image was taken (you can name the city, for example, or provide even more specific details (e.g. sunset taken from Long Beach, WA). This information will be included with each image published.

Depending on the number of images submitted, we will print one or more in each issue of the staff blog.

Note: While the staff blog is emailed to OSD employees, if anyone shares the link it could mean your image is visible to others outside our district. If you are concerned about copyright of your image, we would suggest you not submit for posting.

We look forward to seeing more images in our email inbox!
