This photo was taken along the Columbia River Gorge at the end of a spring day. The shape of the shadow was what caught my eye, and made it look as though there was a river of black ink flowing down.
It was great to see this scene in spring with its warm green and yellow tones. I am fairly certain that the green only lasted a few weeks past this photo.
I've had a few people remark that they did or didn't like the inclusion of the electrical transmission lines and tower, but I think it provides a needed sense of scale and helps "ground" the photo for lack of a better term (pun intended, but reluctantly).
