I couldn’t return to Oregon & not venture to Trillium again.
Most images from here are taken back further & the wider view of the lake, but quite frankly thats been done so many times it just doesn’t do it for me . Sure there are some elements in this id rather not have & could clone out, but would rather show it as it is.
Now this tree which I’m assuming was NOT done by the park services, as I simply cant imagine them chopping it like this & just leaving it. So either it was pure vanadalsim or perhaps a photographer thought it would make for a good added foreground ( No I did not chop it down ) but made use of it ! even sat on it at one point to just suck it all in.
I have managed to capture Mt Hood this time from a number of locations & one in particular I’m excited about as I don’t believe I have ever seen an image captured from before.

Taken in Holland.
Post-processing: I changed the contrast, darkened the edges and reduced noise.

I named the pic “Per Aspera ad Astra” (through hardships to the stars) for I haven’t experienced a comparable cold bivouac the whole winter (and yes, we´ve had a few this winter season ). Pretty weird that the coldest one in winter season 2014/15 had been the first bivouac in spring. The whole equipment had been covered with frost within minutes. If I hadn´t used a “Lensheater” I would´t have been able to realize a single 30 sec shot without frost on the front lens. After one hour of shooting even my clothes had been covered with frost and after 3 hours I had to get in my expedition down sleeping bag for my toes had been completely numb. At least I have been able to realize two shots I had been thinking of for months. Only in spring the milky way has the perfect alignment for the “bow” over the hiker. In the light polluted valley you can see my home 1500m below. During my toes were coming back to “life” tinglingly and stingingly, my second camera had been shooting a timelapse sequence for the rest of the night.
