This image was made from the Portland Women’s Forum Scenic Viewpoint in the Columbia River Gorge of nearby Vista House. According to Google maps, it is just under a mile from where I shot this to the stone building that you see in this image. Times like this having a 500mm lens really does come in handy. :-)
I shot this scene with both my standard D7000 and my IR converted D200, but the IR body really had a distinct advantage over the standard body. By the time we got there it was late morning and the light was already pretty harsh, and there was a great deal of summer haze in the air which was reducing the overall contrast of the scene. IR does a good job with the harsh light and is great for cutting through the haze that is visible to the naked eye, but not so much in the spectrum that the IR converted body plays in.
I hope you enjoy this image and I would really appreciate your taking a moment to leave a comment and to click the share buttons below.
