Autumn in the Columbia Gorge

I spent a day and a half hiking around some of the trails at the Columbia Gorge. I enjoyed a long time at this location, probably longer than I should have, but it was beautiful and I wanted to make sure I had a really nice composition. An advantage to spending a while at a location is the weather can change so later photographs look different than the earlier ones in the same day. In this case, there was a slight breeze early that had leaf movement showing in my shots. a bit later the breeze was gone and the longer exposures came out much better.

I used a 17-35 set at 17mm and a Singh-Ray circular polarizer for this shot.
