Mt Hood Sunset (external link) by No Stone Unturned Photography (external link), on Flickr

I'd like to tell you I sat out in this field and waited for just the perfect moment but that's far from the truth. Ultimately this moment was out of my control and consisted of a hiked-out, uber-tired couple trying for a second time to make it up Mt Hood before they ran out of daylight on their last evening at the Columbia River Gorge, then getting caught in a storm, wandering about not finding the trail they were looking for, eating burritos in the rain, not finding any wildflowers, trying to salvage the drive by taking a remote mountain dirt road in their rental car to see where it went, wondering why we forced the elevated trip, then deciding to just head back down while they could still see.

It ended with my wife pointing out the window, me pulling over on the side of the road and running out across it barefoot to set up the tripod as fast as possible to shoot the mountain foregrounded by vineyards and grain as the last sunset light cast upon it.

TLDR: Not my timing or plan

Lovely photo and good story!!! only thing that grabs me and I know its beyond your control is that windmill. I would clone it out if you can. The white is distracting from such an incredible scene.


Always be open to opinion especially if it's mine!

Thanks. I had every intention of doing that and then somehow I started liking it. Atypical of me, but there it stands just the same :)

Very nice.

Sometimes chaos works to an advantage, it obviously did here! Great capture!
