Mount Hood in Early Morning Fog – Battle Ground, Washington

EXIF Data: f/22, 0.8 sec, 116mm

A photographers dream come true is a nice but what could be considered an ordinary subject in extraordinary circumstances. Such was the case this morning. The sky had been putting on a morning show for a couple of days in a row, so a friend and I decided to head out shooting this particular morning and were rewarded. This scene was viewable just off Highway 503 between Battle Ground and Orchards in Washington State. Thanks Loren for your company on this shoot.


Mount Hood, called Wy’east by the Multnomah tribe, is a stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon. It was formed by a subduction zone and rests in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located about 50 miles (80 km) east-southeast of Portland, on the border between Clackamas and Hood River counties. In addition to being Oregon’s highest mountain, it is one of the loftiest mountains in the nation based on its prominence. The peak is home to twelve glaciers. It is the highest point in Oregon and the fourth-highest in the Cascade Range. -Wikipedia
