Three weeks ago, Mark, Ellie and I went for a hike up into Echo Basin in the Cascade Mountains. This is the basin where we were headed.

If Oregon is anything like here, the green really is unreal. It practically glows. You definitely see that here.

A place full of light .... wonderful green! My father always said that it is difficult to ascertain the light with this color. He added that the green color "eats" A point of light diaphragm more po less! Tips that are never forgotten. Excellent composition friend Jack! A perfect trip! A good Sunday! Muchos besos, Adela
