[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the Columbia River Gorge, winter seems to last forever sometimes, well at least after 35 straight days of rain it does. I took a walk on my break at work around the old mill pond. The view here looks across the Columbia River into Oregon and the Benson Plateau, where Mike and I hiked and camped out YEARS and YEARS ago. I liked the way these trees leaned against the wind, almost like they were leaning towards the blue sky, missing it as much as I did.

Hi Lori
With the benefit of seeing the follow up posting I can see exactly what you mean. Since you have this one and the rainy one in the exact same position you should consider (if you perhaps did not already do so) to complete the series with some autumn, summer and spring captures as well.
This is a great composition - the lead in of the little road, the lane of trees taking you deeper into the photo, the splash of water on the side, and the blue-blue mountains leading into the azure sky. This is one of those photos that are worth much more credit than what it unfortunately received.
The colours are nice, the DOF is great, and the exposure is spot-on
Very well done and TFS.
