hood on ice

Uploaded: August 17, 2008


Seen from near Laurance Lake Mount Hood looms over the mixed forest's fresh Spring foliage at daybreak. Winter has not yet eased its icy grip on the landscape.

I saw your mini-pic...jumped to your gallery...saw the thumbnails and thought "you must not participate in the contest", but then noticed most were recently uploaded. Awesome shots, John...glad you're back on BP! #986321

Thanks for the compliment Ken. You got it right... yes, I joined BP... four years ago (!) then got distracted and forgot about all it(!) I think it might have been your recent photo (The IR bridge at Newport) that reminded me that there is great photography here. (Btw... I also love your "Seattle in Warp Drive," "Heade Home," and the North Head Light house in IR. Good to be here. #6367595
