Photographer's Note

A shot of windsurfers on the Columbia River near the town of Hood River, Oregon. Looking west into the late-afternoon sun. Here the river cuts through the Cascade Mountain range, with cliffs rising as high as 4000 feet on the south (Oregon) side. The east-west orientation of the gorge causes a wind-tunnel effect, so windsurfers and other water-wind enthusiasts flock here from all over.

My first outing with a new D200. The backlit effect was intentional.
