Some days when the sun sets, the sky turns a beautiful rose pink, fading to gold with a faint hint of green at the horizon. It is very beautiful.
This 150 year old church is a landmark that can be seen for miles in any direction. It is about 3 miles East of where I was standing to shoot this photo. The 300mm zoom lens I used on my camera makes it look much closer, doesn't it?
Looking West a few minutes later, Mt. Hood glows in the reflected light of the same pink and gold sunset. Look at all that snow! (Compare this photo to the same view shot last November.)
Did you know that tonight is the largest full moon of the year? If the clouds clear up I am going to try to get a photo of the moonrise.
