Runner up

Made a quick dash out to Hood River in hopes of catching a sunset of Mt Hood. It was a fairly cloudy day, but had lots of patches of clear sky giving me high hopes that the fast moving clouds would reveal the mountain just in time for a couple photo’s. Unfortunately, the clouds stuck to Mt Hood like glue and engulfed her totally from view, dashing my high hopes! so I grabbed a quick barn shot on the way out of town as a consolation photo.


On a side note I watched the movie “127 hours” (based on a true story about a climber that becomes trapped under a boulder while canyoneering alone near Moab, Utah and resorts to desperate measures in order to survive) this weekend, which is a great reminder to always leave notes or tell people where you are going when heading out for some hiking / photography fun, something I rarely have done, but this movie really opens your eyes on a how things can turn for the worse in a split second!
