“Mt. Bachelor Sunrise”, Fine art photograph
Mt. Bachelor is Oregon’s largest ski resort with 3,600 skiable acres and over 3,300 feet of vertical. With an average snowfall of over 462 inches, Mt Bachelor is frequently blessed with fresh powder. I captured this beautiful image of Mt Bachelor the morning after a heavy snowfall. The pre-dawn temperature was in single digits and there was 28 inches of fresh powder on top of a deep base. The wintry conditions made for slow snow-shoeing but excellent landscape photography!
“Mt Bachelor Sunrise”
This image was captured from near the summit of Tumalo Mountain, which I’ve climbed countless times for photography purposes. On this particular morning, the conditions conspired to create a beautiful mountain photograph. The view of Mt Bachelor from Tumalo Mountain is beautiful on anytime but on this morning, it was resplendent. Heavy snow coating a beautifully composed copse of subalpine fir all backed by the majestic Mt Bachelor being bathed in morning alpenglow. The submit clouds hovering over the summit of Mt. Bachelor complete this fine art photograph of Central Oregon’s favorite ski resort. Without the cloud cover, the sky would have been pale and dull. In my experience, cloud- cover hovering over Mt. Bachelor at sunrise after a fresh dump of powder is a rare occurrence. I’ve seen countless images of Mt. Bachelor that were simply captured too long after the snow had fallen. With the windy conditions on Tumalo Mountain, snow typically is dusted off of the alpine firs and white barked pine within a couple of hours. Without the snow, the image if a failure. One of the bonuses of climbing Tumalo Mountain is the stunning view in multiple directions. To see a view of the Three Sisters and Broken top in Winter, visit , Oregon Cascades in Winter.
