[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Located twenty miles east of the city of Portland, Oregon, and the northern Willamette River valley, the Mt. Hood National Forest extends south from the strikingly beautiful Columbia River Gorge across more than sixty miles of forested mountains, lakes and streams to Olallie Scenic Area, a high lake basin under the slopes of Mt. Jefferson. The Forest encompasses some 1,067,043 acres.
Some popular destinations that offer rewarding visits are Timberline Lodge, built in 1937 high on Mt. Hood, Lost Lake, Trillium Lake, Timothy Lake, Rock Creek Reservoir and portions of the Old Oregon Trail, including Barlow Road.
This photo is taken at Trillium Lake with the view of Mt Hood.

Hi Waylim,
beautiful landscape, lovely place.
Great composition, good shot.

Hi Way Lim
Excellent capture of this male Whinchat with good pose and composition, sharp details and bright natural colours.


Hallo Way
An absolutely marvelous fairy-like world picture pretty photograph, filled with a feeling of absolute tranquility and harmony. This image is a definite feast to the eye. The different colours blends in so well with one another, like a puzzle. The ripples and shine on the water is lovely and the pinkish flowers just slightly visible attract the eye. Thank you for sharing this dream of a landscape. My idea of a dreamscape. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Hi Way

What a lovely view of the beautiful and respect commanding mt. Hood!
I really like this composition here - not ultra wide but not too tight either - wit the peak well positioned at 1/3 of the frame.
The colors and tones everywhere are lovely and the ripples on the water a such a nice treat, too!
Clear and eloquent, this is one of those shots you have nothing to complain about...except the fact that you (the viewer) weren't actually there when it was taken :)
Merry Christmas to you, too, buddy!

Bravo and TFS

This is one of the nicer photos of Mt. Hood I've seen. I live practically in the shadow of that mountain and I've never been particularly fond of it. You've made it appear very attractive. Have used any kind of warming filter while shooting or afterwards? Also what kind of sharpening do you use? It seems a bit different than usual.

Hi Way,
A very beautiful photo of a technical high standard. The composition is pefectly chosen with the rocks and fireweed leading the to the boardwalk and beyond to Mt. Hood. That splash of color in the FG is really perfect. The warm light in the air and the softness of the light give this photo a very tranquil feel.

This is a very cool shot! It might be a little oversharpened but it adds a really cool effect! Very nicely done!
