There is nothing I like better than spontaneously discovering a new place to be surrounded by the beauty of nature. While driving towards the Mount Hood area, I pulled out my phone and simply googled a place with a view of Mount Hood. After some searching we found that we were near Trillium Lake. 2 miles off of U.S. 26, the lake has a campground and boat ramp. This picture was taken from the pier near the boat ramp. My goal was to capture the colors the sunset was creating on the mountain and in the reflection of the water.
"Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man." - Orison Swett Marden
