Sundown Silhouette

As the sun went down over Timothy Lake, the land was silhouetted against the blue skies behind it.

On another note...

I was recently contacted by a online travel site rep that wanted to use some of my wedding photography for a new Mt Hood area based website. I gave her a few photos I have done in the past (since I am not doing a lot of wedding stuff anymore these days). I also asked if she needed any landscape type photos for her site and she was excited at my offer. So after many emails and exchanges, the site is live and some of my photos have been used!! Yay for me! Guess this blogging habit is paying off a bit. I am glad because it is more focused on the type of photography I enjoy doing the most and the new techinques I have been trying to teach myself lately.

If you want to check out the new site and the photos they used, here are the links to the specific pages I am featured on:
