Mt Hood at Trillium Lake

They say luck is when preparation meets opportunity. If that’s the case, sunrise at Trillium lake was a lucky morning. We were greeted with serenity and a clear sky with soft ground fog. It was one of those moments when you’d run from spot to spot to capture as many different looks that you could. For extra piece of mind I shot 5 and 7 bracketed exposures just to be sure I got sufficient dynamic range. The first image was my favorite of the morning and is an HDR image created with 7 exposures, the second and third are single images.

    I really love the mist in the second shot and the rafter addes a lot to the image IMO.

    In the third image, you can see the chemtrails and it’s disgusting that they exist even in gorgeous locations like that. These are not natural clouds.ReplyCancel

    I love these images. Especially the second one, but I was amazed that the first was an HDR – you haven’t gone the horrible over-saturate route that most HDR shots go. My hat is off to you!ReplyCancel

    I like your second image it conveys a peaceful and mystique feeling to the surroundings with the mist and the canoe. I have shot quite a few images myself and I have to make it to an earlier hour sometime soon. Thanks for your inspiring images on this site.ReplyCancel
