Moonrise over Mt. Hood
Moonrise over Mt. Hood. Mt. Hood National Forest, Oregon - 7/03/12.
Just a few moments after the sun had disappeared over the city of Portland, to the West, a bright full moon began rising over the Mt. Hood National forest. I came to this spot to try and capture a shot of the moon itself, but found it was mostly hidden by a layer of clouds. Sometimes you don't always get what you want, but if you are open to the beauty that is often right in front of you, you just might be happily surprised.
