Mt Hood Wildflowers

Alpenglow warms Mt Hood and awakens a meadow of Balsamroot and Lupines


Oregon’s tallest Mountain, Mt Hood, can seen from much of Northern Oregon. Its glaciated shoulders have greeted travelers for countless generations. On special mornings, warm pink alpenglow illuminates those glaciated shoulders for a few fleeting moments. This alpenglow is one of my favorite natural phenomena, which has to be seen to be appreciated. One the morning I captured this stunning new Mt Hood fine art print, Mt Hood wildflowers were in full bloom. The conditions were wonderfully windless.  Balsamroot and Lupines intermingled to create a vibrant foreground for the glowing Mt Hood. All this combined to allow me to create a stunning new fine art landscape photograph.

While Mt Hood is one of the crown jewels of the Oregon Cascades, I actually captured this landscape photograph in the state of Washington at Dalles Mountain Ranch, a wonderful natural area which exploded with wildflower in early spring.  Located in the eastern part of the Columbia River Gorge, I it offers sweeping views of the Columbia River as well as Mt Hood. The Columbia River Gorge is famed for the waterfalls such as Elowah Falls, Oneonta Falls,  and Oregon’s tallest waterfall, Multnomah Falls.  As the Columbia River Gorge extends eastward, the gorge broadens and annual rainfall is dramatically diminished, as is spring cloud cover. Without clouds, the eastern Gorge is much warmer, fostering the growth of sun-loving wildflowers such as balsamroot and Lupines, as seen in this Mt Hood wildflowers photograph.
