Willamette Valley Sky Drama

I'm pretty glad that I live half hour from this place. I checked out the sky from my home and I knew it would be good here... I originally wanted to go to the gorge, but I didn't feel like risking losing the great clouds over here in the valley. Well, it turns out that the gorge had a pretty epic sunset, too! As I was shooting this scene, a huge thunderstorm was gathering over the cascades, behind me. In 10 minutes, I would see some pretty awesome lightning among the clouds, but it was impossibly sporadic and I didn't get a shot off. Oh well! I'll take a nice sunset like this any time.




I am working on getting a major photo project funded. Check it out here: . I need backers to help get me to my goal - Hopefully I can get some awesome conditions like this when I am out there experiencing eastern Oregon. I should mention that no donation is too small. Even a few dollars helps me out, and if all of my contacts put in that amount, I would have more than enough to get the project funded.
