Mt Jefferson from my house where I lived then...
A late evening with slow shutter speed on tripod to catch all the details created by the prizm effect...

"Mount Jefferson was named in honor of US President Thomas Jefferson by the Lewis and Clark Expedition. This was the only High Cascade mountain they named.The expedition, which was sponsored by President Jefferson, first saw the peak from the mouth of the Willamette River in March 1806.
The average elevation of the terrain around Jefferson is 5,500 to 6,500 feet (1,700 to 2,000 m), meaning that Jefferson's cone still towers nearly 1 mile (1.6 km) above it. Previous studies estimated that the cone is made of roughly equal amounts of tephra and lava, but Sutton's 1974 study found half as much tephra as expected. The remainder of the material thought to be tephra was in fact broken lava rock." [Taken from Wikipedia]

Hi David,

This is a very nice panoramic shot of the mountain, you were fortunate to have a view like this from your house. Nicely composed with good use of layers. The cloud cover is not only interesting, but did a good job diffusing the sunlight. The sunbeams are well seen also.

Best regards,

because my studies were geography yes I love that volcanic montain, we cann see this at the first look
because montains and walk are my passion yes I love this shoot
because of the light and the could and because of your choise agains the sun
because the size like a panorama
because the montain is right at an 1/3 place
and so... and so...
because it's a calm nice place ☺
Thanks for presenting us this Jefferson Montain (I just know the President name and now the montain! great!!)

Marvellous colors in a very beautiful composition where the peak of the mountain seems to be reaching for the clouds. The sun and it beams make this a very special moment.

Hi David
You've captured an impressive view with Mt Jefferson being lit up by the reflection of the sun, in the clouds. A beautiful moment captured.

Hello David! An interresting image of that great mountain with a nice sunset as a plus. I like the way the clouds seem to rest on the peak of the mountain. Well seen and done.
