New on 500px : Blustery Still by everlookphotography by everlookphotography

Mount Hood , Oregon

This shot was taken on our trip to the Pacific Northwest in 2013 during a couple of unusual things happened. One was influenza (which wasn’t too unusual given the age of charlotte at the time). The second was that Oregon went through a 2 week phase of blue sky weather uninterrupted! On this morning, the trip up to Tom Dick and Harry Mountain was a pleasant walk by moonlight with blustery winds up top (hence the lit trees moving). It’s such a beautiful spot and walk that of course in the future, it is another location on the ‘redo’ list and hopefully with some fit little ones tagging along!

New on 500px : Moon Shadow – Mount Hood, Oregon by DaveMorrow by DaveMorrow

In my opinion this is one of Mount Hood’s most under rated vantage points, especially in the winter months. We arrived just after midnight as the rising moon was sitting low in the sky casting shadows and amazing light over most of the landscape.

With a tall snow embankment on my left, the moon’s light didn’t touch the foreground but blazed it’s light across the remainder of the landscape. Slight cloud cover gives a nice glow to the stars with Mount Hood looming in the background. When printed full size you can see the snow flakes sparkle in the light, but standing there it almost felt like there were small blinking lights covering the ground.

This photo is composed of two shots ( same composition ), 1 at a short exposure time / high ISO to capture the stars without creating star trails. Another shot was taken at lower ISO and longer exposure time to capture the rest of the scene without generating as much noise. These two shots were taken seconds apart to capture what I saw that night. Fresh snow + night skies = Good times!

If you’re interested in learning how to post process or take shots like this, Michael Shaiblum and I just launched our new website http://ift.tt/19O2rOv which is solely dedicated to night sky & star photography education, tutorials, mentoring and workshops.

New on 500px : Sylvan Stillness by GaryRandall by GaryRandall

A Sylvan Scene Near Still Creek, Oregon. Darlene and I took advantage of the rain that came in yesterday to go out and get a forest scene or two. This is a sweet little side creek with a beautiful blanket of moss and ferns all around it. This is about a 15 minute drive from my home here near Mount Hood.

New on 500px : The Midas Touch by alexnoriega by alexnoriega

The day’s first light graces fresh snow at White River, below Mount Hood. This was the first image I made upon getting back to Oregon a couple months ago. I still somehow don’t own snowshoes, so I just went ahead and postholed the whole way. FYI, I teach my processing techniques, and offer prints and stuff!
