This is just a magical place and you've captured it beauty to the point I'm ready to get on a plane. Awesome John. #1077003

Thanks Ann. Yes this is a well-known 'icon' here --probably the most photographed Oregon landmark-- and the fog adds some mystery. Also, the setting sun added some color in the sky, too. Glad you like it.

By all means come visit.. but a car might be better than a plane so... Phantom can come along, too ;-) #7115172

Thanks Denny. Yes, fog, followed by high winds, icy conditions, freezing rain, haze, overcast flat light... and the occasional calm bright day... but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else :-) #7134374
