Take hwy 26 East out of Portland, OR and drive for an hour - then when you reach Mt Hood, take a left onto 35 and drive for around 10 minutes - White River West Snow Park will be on your left.
To create this image I took 3 exposures a full stop apart, and hand-blended them in photo shop using luminosity masking techniques for tone and color.
I took this photo on a particularly colorful morning while snowshoeing near Mt. Hood in Oregon. All morning I had been trying to get the perfect shot of Mt Hood as the sun was rising. Luckily I turned around and noticed the great red color raining down on the stream as the sun peaked over the distant hills.
