‘Mt. Hood Sunset’ by Christopher Fridley

Congratulations  to Christopher Fridley for winning the Twilight Assignment!

“On a photo road trip in July 2014 down to the Mount Hood, Oregon region to explore the areas’ lakes, trails, waterfalls and Mt Hood itself, my wife and I spent our anniversary evening among about twenty other photographers gathered at the shoreline of the lake. It was a very breezy and chilly evening and it didn’t seem like anything special would unfold. We watched photographers pack up and leave until we realized we were all alone at the lake. Then the magic began to happen as lenticular clouds appeared out of nowhere, reflecting the alpenglow. Patience was the key factor in capturing this image,” says Fridley.

Equipment: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G3, Lumix G Vario 14-24mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH, Hoya Circular Polarizer and UV filter, Hoya PRO1D ND8, Benro Travel Angel II Tripod.
