The Traveling Camera: Sparks Lake Magic

Posted By on Tue, Sep 25, 2012 at 11:20 PM

Once a year we go for sunrise to Sparks Lake. This September while going up there with a bunch of other photo enthusiasts we met at the Cascade Center of Photography at 5:45 AM. I soft rain was falling but we saw some breaks in the clouds in the East.

Up at the lake the sky stayed grey and we started taking photos of misty forest scenes and shrubs. Then after more than two hours of rather dull light the clouds parted and South Sister and Broken Top appeared in all their glory. The mix of mist, clouds and sun were awesome and the clatter of shooting cameras started up like the beginning of a Civil War reenactment.

Oregon's beautiful Landscapes often make for this kind of WOW moments. This after all is why we go out and take pictures and this is why we live here.
