Sometimes the mighty mighty sky puts on such a show at sunset that I just want to stand still taking it all in, with the camera put away, because I feel like no photo or amount of photos could do the scene justice. I have never felt that way at much as I did last night. I was photographing another gorgeous wedding for a wonderful couple at Mt Hood Organic Farms in Parkdale, Oregon. It was a pretty gray day, not much happening with the light, but that all changed right at sunset. About 15 minutes before this was taken, the sky was still gray and blah. We would've never guessed a show like this one was about to happen. What a treat. Luckily for my clients, I didn't stand there with the camera put away and I made some incredible portraits with their wedding day sunset to cherish forever. As my wife Bethany continued shooting their portraits, I quickly sprinted up a hill to get an even better view, and fired off 15 vertical images to make this panoramic image. It's quite beautiful, but I feel it still doesn't quite show what it fully looked like (and felt like). Also, notice the first fresh dusting of snow on Mt Hood. Wow... what a world we live in... enjoy it folks. Thanks for letting me share.
