Thanks folks, glad you like it.

I actually went to that viewpoint hoping to make a panorama of the Columbia Gorge, so at first the fog was a ...disappointment(!)

...until I saw the possibilities it created....

I have another one I may post later today, that was taken an hour later, after the sun had set and the fog had dropped a few hundred feet, but still not gone...

Thanks again for taking the time to comment. #7109662
