This shot was taken from the Women's Forum in the Columbia River Gorge. You can also see the Vista House in the distance.


TIP: How to Catch the Best Light.

Prior to going out to shoot any sunset it is always good to plan where you will catch the best picture from. I use several tools to do this. First of all, Google Earth, this allows the user to see where the sun will actually set/rise on the day you are going to shoot and allows for perfect set up prior to shooting. Second I use Stuck on Earth. Want a great shot? This is the app to use for it. Lastly I use the a great app that adds a bit more than Google Earth. Try these out and your next shoot and let me know what you think.
