Mt Hood

Mt Hood Jonsrud Sunrise


I took a quick drive with my two youngest kids this morning to catch the sunrise at Jonsrud point in Sandy. We got a few shots of the sun lighting up the side of the mountain as it was rising a little to the South.

We met another photographer who was just finishing up and had driven a lot further than we had to try to get some shots of Comet ISON. His name is Chip McAlpineand he has made some really fantastic astrophotography images.

Always fun to meet other folks who don't mind getting out in the cold and the wind for a good image!

So after yesterday, and a few cold, clear evenings this winter wishing I was in a better location for it, I decided to be intentional about getting a good clear image of Mt Hood right at twilight. I looked around online and discovered Jonsrud viewpoint in Sandy. There were 5 other photographers that had the same idea.

When I was processing these I just couldn't decide between color and B&W. I went with one of each. I think each is complimented well by the choice.

The first was made using my Soligor OM Mount 75-205mm at f/8. The second is with the Sony 18-55mm at f/8.
