Spring blossoms in the Hood River Valley

A pink ornamental towers over the white flowers of the working fruit groves below. Located near Pine Grove in the Hood River Valley, Oregon.

Searching for a sunset location about 6 PM, I drove by the cemetary near Pine Grove and noticed the pink blossoms from the road. I walked back and spent 45 minutes photographing the tree, fruit groves and Mt. Hood.

Finished, I packed up a 7PM and drove out. When I saw the view from the road again and realized that it was better than the ones I'd been shooting.

So I pulled over right there, set up the tripod and photographed another 15 minutes until the light was gone. This was one of the first shots of the second set.
