Mt. Hood Sunrise
After a solid week of rain and fog, we were rewarded yesterday morning with a glorious sunrise! I saw it forming, and hurried over to the WSU campus, which has a good view of Mt. Hood and Mount St. Helens. Mt. Hood is to our southwest, so it's right in line for a sunrise. I only took this one photo of the mountain though; I thought the light was a little too intense around the mountain, and I shifted my attention to that pink light in the lower left of the photo. I sort of regret that now, because I do think the light came out pretty nice behind the mountain. Overall though the sunrise was more pink; for whatever reason my camera read the cloud light as warmer than it looked to me. Hopefully I will have another opportunity to try this shot again soon. The spectacular sunrises tend to come in a batch, so I was on watch this morning, but we had less than a minute of interesting light. Now I'm on sunrise skywatch for the next few weeks!
