Mount Hood 2903m (9525ft.)

The valley leading up to Mount Hood is called King Creek, one of my favorite short hikes. King Creek is a fun valley in both winter and summer. In the winter you need Snowshoes as the snow can get quite deep. The waterfalls in winter turn to ice, and create beautiful sculptures against the canyon walls.

Mount Hood was named in 1922 after the Honorable Horace Hood who was a Rear Admiral in the Battle of Jutland during WW1. His ship the HMS Invincible was the ship he went down with.

Looks like a very impressive mountian Janice! Some pretty harsh light here unfortunately lessens the impressiveness (is that a word?) of the details of the rocky spires. Perhaps a half f-stop or so of underexposure would have helped here. Just out of curiosity, do you shoot in RAW at all?

Hi Janice,
Tim is right about the lighting, but I really do like the clarity created by the sun. It has such a crisp feeling to it all. The colors of the rock just jump out of the composition. I love how the clouds left some shadows on the peak. Great POV, well composed and perfect work on the contrast and colors.

Hello Janice,
Strong landscape composition!
I like the V-shape diagonals, framing the summit nicely ...
Great clarity in the colours, fine details!

What an impressive mountain range. Its majestetic and looks like a great place to climb :) I bet the view from there is fantastic. I love the way youve composed the image with green trees in front, grey mountain and bright blue sky. It looks very nice. Youve also managed to control the light very well.
Salute to you :)


Nice crisp delivery of a familiar winter scene. I especially like the fir trees that look like an arrowhead shooting up the slope; two parts glues to a white shaft... Good distribution of the colour bands - green, gray, blue in the compo. Well seen, well presented. Jay

A beautiful scene the detail is superb and a nice composition good colours TFS rgds Necip.

Hi Janice,
You chose a very nice POV for this photo.
I like this impressive apparition behind the green "curtain".
The greatness of the mountain is well captured and the shadows casted by the clouds on the peaks induce a feeling of mystery to the composition.

Hi Janice,
Beautiful landscape, awesome contrast between the white rocks and the green pine forest. Wonderful POV, composition, colors, sky, sharp as razorblade. Easily one of Your best shots - I bookmark it as a favorite photo to avoid telling further clichés. :)
Congrats and tfs, best wishes, László
