Mt. Jefferson from Scout Lake · Jefferson Park · Mt. Jefferson Wilderness · Willamette National Forest · Oregon · USA
Deep chills and breathless thrills take hold as night descends upon Jefferson Park. I did fairly minimal processing with this one, as I felt the barebones exposure pretty well captured the moment's mood in a way that didn't need a whole lot of additional translation. Look closely, too--that's not another mountain ridge fronting Mt. Jefferson...it's the moon casting a shadow of Jefferson's jagged spine onto a swiftly passing cloud below its summit.
