This is one of those shots where constant visits and careful planning led to a much anticipated payoff… I've been staking out this shot since early 2013 (I literally had to wait for the grain to grow -- the dirt field that preceded it just didn't feel right). If you follow me on instagram, then you've seen multiple views from this vantage point over the last year or so as I revisited to check conditions. Finally one visit saw all the right elements converged -- the result is one of my most favorite views of Mt. Hood, and you can rest assured that I'll be checking back at all seasons to see how the view changes.
