Mount Hood, Oregon peaks through early morning haze made by the Columbia River radiating cool air mist rising from the water’s surface and spreading throughout the entire area in the hot dense morning atmosphere.
This image was lensed very early in the pre-dawn morning when flying from Hillsboro Oregon over to Yakima, Washington. The sun is still 45 minutes away from rising so all the ambient blue-hued light is due to the over the horizon alpenglow effect.
