Spring comes to Oregon

After the usually long (or what feels like long) rainy winter in Oregon, spring has arrived. In early April the Hood River valley turns into a pallet of white blossoms with a sweet nectar smell hanging in the air. I took advantage of an unusually warm April Saturday with my energetic dog Ellie to explore the valley and orchards. Scattered among the trees were a few barns, some well kept and some not. It was this one that stood out to me with it’s position and Mt Hood hanging over the barns left shoulder. I was hoping for some clouds to make the sky a little more dynamic, but the color from the apenglow on the mountain, barn, and blossoms carries the image. I enjoyed this shoot a little more than some due to the company of several other photographers that also had an idea of what this barn might have in store come sunset. Great day shooting and great company and conversations.
