Mt. Hood, Oregon

Mt. Hood


Mt. Hood looms in the background as it takes on the shape of a giant ice cream cone. The snow covered dimples in the foreground were created by the many small creeks that flow in to the Fanning. I gingerly snow-shoed out to the middle of the frozen lake in order to get this shot. I wanted to frame as much of the mountain in the background without having too much snow in the foreground. I was using my Canon EOS T1i along with my Tokina 12-24mm wide angle lens. I set the focal length to 24mm in order to zoom in to the mountain. I had the camera mode in Program/Normal mode so the aperture was set at F-10 and the exposure time at 1/200 second. I set the ISO to 100 and the white balance to -0.3 in order to eliminate the harshness of the bright light. I also used my warming filter and CIR-PL due to the glare from the snow and to capture as much of the blue sky as possible.
