Happy Independence Day

American Flag Macro

Happy Birthday America!

Pictured is my late grandfathers American Flag, which at some point flew over the capitol building in Washington DC, according to my grandma. I asked her if I could have the flag a few weeks ago, and this is its first holiday flying at my house. I am sure my grandpa would be pleased.

Sunset over Hwy 26

I unexpectedly found myself trying my hand at another form of night photography: light trails.

Coming down from Mt Hood on Hwy 26, the sky lit up with an amazing sunset. I had a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach. "Ugh! I am gonna miss taking a photo of this amazing sky?" But as I approached the Boring overpass, I was inspired. I quickly pulled up onto the bridge, got my camera out and took the last moments of color, with the traffic flowing underneath me.

Mt. Hood from Pine Grove, Oregon

I had to hunt a bit for this photo location. I could see Mt. Hood clearly while driving up Hwy 35 from Hood River. Pulling off the highway at a random road, I came into the tiny community of Pine Grove. I parked near a warehouse and noticed the orchards behind it and Mt. Hood beyond that. Walking down the tracks a ways, this pretty view came to be, and I was glad I hunted it down!

Beargrass In Bloom

In my opinion, this is the prime time of year to hike in the Mt Hood wilderness. The weather is typically warm and mild (with the exception of this weekend, where it is supposed to reach 100!), and the wildflowers are amazing! I took my first short hike after injuring my foot a few weeks ago this past weekend, and was amazed at the beauty. I don't take many flower photos anymore. However, I could not pass up clicking this photo. Arguably the most noticeable wildflower in its peak right now is beargrass. It truly seems like there is more flowers than usual. Perhaps our mild winter aided in more blooming this year? All I do know is that it was amazing to see the fields upon fields of blooms.

The Red Barn of Hood River

Red Barn, Mt Hood, Pear Orchard, Hood River, Oregon ©www.hoodphotography.com

Taking a photo of this landscape is almost an obligatory thing for any photographer driving around the Hood River area. The pear orchard is such a picturesque location, with Mt. Hood looming over the bright red barn. Stopping there is irresistible. Typically photos are taken here in the spring, with the pear blossoms in bloom. It is way past that season at this point, and little baby pears are growing in the trees now!
