Anticipating the sunrise

I woke early and headed out to the Columbia River Gorge anticipating photographing the sunrise over Mount Hood. Unfortunately the dreary grey clouds didn’t break, the amazing sunrise never happened and I was left trying to decide whether to head back home empty handed or find a new subject to photograph.

From the Historic Columbia River Highway I could see wonderful reflections in the wetlands nearby so I grabbed my gear and set off through dense thickets of thorny blackberry bushes carrying my equipment and all the while trying not to slip on the wet, moss covered rocks.

Even though I ended up with a number of scrapes and cuts and the sunrise I originally went out to photograph never materialized it was a great morning.
