photoblog image View of Mt Hood from the Columbia Gorge

View of Mt Hood from the Columbia Gorge

In the past six years that I've lived in Portland, I've taken a lot of pictures of Mt Hood from the ground or from the air, taken at different times of the year and different times of the day.  This one comes out of the archives, but is a different view from the other ones posted here: http://kay.shutterchance.com/slideshow/theme/10-mt-hood/

It was taken in the late afternoon, under the glow of the sun.

 

Warning: Opens in slideshow mode in a new window for full effect!
Note: All images are copyrighted.  Special thanks to my friend Richard who pilots the plane.

Sublime use of light here. I have read a report by a architects photographer. He explained that each building has a specific angle and the time of day (coupled to good weather) when it will be best to photograph. He spends days on a building to discover the best 'pose' by the building. I guess the same counts for a mountain like this. And you may have the best 'pose' here.
