Mt Hood

I spent about two weeks trying to photograph Mt Hood from the unusually named Tom Dick and Harry Mountain. I pushed my Photoshop ethics quite a bit here because the fog layer was actually sloping down to the left and required some ‘pushing and pulling’ in post to make it look natural.  Highway 26 runs downhill from the ski station all the way to Portland and I suppose the fog follows the contours of the valley.
After shooting this I returned to the parking lot to discover a line of cars that had all been broken into, broken glass littered the parking lot. Criminals had clearly taken advantage of the remote location and broken into cars left at the trail head. I was in such a good mood from capturing the image I didn’t let this bother me. I was perhaps luckier than most, my car wasn’t damaged but I did lose my a few things.
