Description

While the Columbia River Gorge Area receives heavy visitation, especially after cool autumn temperatures transform foliage into colorful shades of red and yellow; countless scenic vistas within it’s boundaries make it possible to find views which have not yet been overly photographed. I drove east through the Gorge to the town of Hood River, looking for a spot to set up and photograph a view facing west toward sunset. After some exploration, I found an off the beaten path location, which led to this particular vantage point. Although lacking in color, sunset did provide some interesting clouds, and after thinking about a recent experience during similar shooting conditions, I decided to select a long exposure, hoping the diffused light would enhance the colorful foliage, while also adding an element of interest to the sky.
