It's Blossom Festival time in Oregon's Hood River Valley. Two Cascade peaks overlook this valley. This is Mt Adams in the state of Washington. While it is taller (at 12,276 feet) than Oregon's Mt Hood, it doesn't get the press because many of Washington's Cascade peaks are taller; :ike Mt Ranier's 14,410 ft. I think I's also because Mt Hood (Oregon's tallest cascade at 11,237 feet) has a more Matterhorn-like shape.

A pleasant slightly panoramic image mixing two seasons, the highlights on the snowy peak are superb and detach its shape well from the sky

Merveilleux panoramique printanier avec la nature qui revit ety la montagne encore enneigée derrière.. Belle prise de vue et excellente perspective. Les arbres vert d'un coté et l'autre en fleurs, c'est de toute beauté.
Bravo!... et bonne soirée,

There is a nice balance of urban and rural here as well as a nice balance of all the visual elements. I like the crop to a near panoramic eliminating some of the sky.

It looks like a picture I took a couple of days ago in the western part of Italy. The snowy mountain in the background catches the eye and the road leads it to the horizon. I love the trees in blossom on the left. Good colours and light.

wow, how great this view is...
pablominto (53746) 2010-04-20 23:32
A beautiful place and a wonderful spring scene!
Everything seems to be there - the fresh foliage, the fruit trees in blossom, even the snowcapped mountain to make the scene perfect...
A lovely valley and a good choice to depict spring at its best..!

A very pleasant harmony of colors on this photograph and which pretty landscape. I like much contrast that this snow-covered high summit gets. Still a very beautiful area of the American West. Marvellous season that spring, thank you Pat.
With all my friendships of sunny Versailles and with soon,

Classic cone shaped and snow covered volcano is beautiful. Rooadside PoV gives a nice perspective. Trees on bright shiny spring colours look good too. Panoramic format fits well.

I like the panoramic framing and the great depth of the image that you have obtained. The Mount Adams with its mantle of snow creates a nice contrast with the explosion of life and of colors in the trees and such a green vegetation, while the road takes our eyes towards the base of the mountains.
The light is splendid.
Excellent work, my friend.
Have a nice day

Hello Pat, Lovely picture of Mt. Adams. My son in law trail bikes in that area and for 20 plus years I saw both Adams and Hood on my way to work. Beautiful composition with the road leading ones eye past the blooming trees on the one side and the green vegetation of the trees on the other side. A definite camera workshop and forum principal. Good Job. Regards, Roger BTW great huckleberries on Mt. Adams.

beautiful scene and you have captured it very well. The road leads our eye straight to the snow covered mountain. Great to see the trees beside the road. Very good photographic quality. Tfs.
My best wishes.

The giant snow mountain is incredibly beautiful,like a giant mount of ice cream, well matched by the pieces of white in the trees. The framing is good, with the road very well positioned. It seems to be the way to the cold realms, making us curious, wanting to follow the road. Good effect, congratulations!
gervaso (12987) 2010-04-22 20:57
This snow mountain really stands out in the composition, which has very good colors and contrasts! The depth is also very nice in your picture! Excellent job! And what a wonderful place!

Very impressive this landschape. I love the contrast of colors here and also the idea of contrast of climat; the mountain coverd by the cold snow and on the valley the blosom.
s_lush (16134) 2010-04-25 23:19
This is an extremely beautiful spring-time scene, with the white blossom in the foreground, the white snow in the background and fresh greens in between. A very bright, sunny, colorful and top-quality photo!

Put nas vodi negde daleko u nepoznato ...
Lep pogled preko drveca i brda na mocnu planinu sa snegom.
Dobar uvodni tekst i lepa fotografija, cestitam vam.
Lepo je ovo gledati, sve najbolje, Paja.
The road takes us far away into the unknown ...

The great peak along with the pstel sky makes an excellent backdrop to this splendid spring time scene.
Fine depth and lovely soft colors.

I choose this one. Excellent contrast between the snowy mountain and the blossom trees.
The composition is very pleasant and the road create a good perspective to lead to the back ground.

Beautiful shot, I love the essence of spring so well capture in this image with the cheerful colors of the baby green and the blossom. I love standing under the tree when there was light wind, and the patel floating like snow. the background mountain certainly steal the show as the road lead right to its base.
