I got up awfully early for a Saturday, hoping for a sunrise over Mt Hood. It didn't happen though. This shot near Rhodedendron is all I saw of any good sunlight or even just a break in the clouds.
There's always the chance that you get dressed, prepare all your gear and drive out there just to stare at a bank of fog, but if you don't make the effort, there is exactly 0% chance of getting the shot. I'm new to this part of photography, but I suppose I'll have to get more used to it.
