Hood Dawn by MichaelBollino

Soft pre-sunrise color surround a craggy sub-summit of Mount Hood. Took a bit of effort to hike to this spot on the mountain but it was well worth it in the end.

I don’t post as much here as I do on other sites. Feel free to follow over there or pay a visit to my website for more information and a complete look at my galleries.

Hope by MichaelBollino

Broken, then Hope

This image is dedicated to Jeff Swanson, a member of our landscape photography community who passed away a year ago after battling melanoma. Although I only met him in person once, his smile, easy going, witty nature struck me immediately. Days before his death he took the time (and energy) to create a comical image based upon an inside joke then posted it to my FB timeline. It cracked me up and truly made my day. Such a good dude. The world misses him.

To honor Jeff, consider making a donation to the : Melanoma Research Foundation

Or, consider buying a print from Jeff’s Website

Thanks, please donate, and Jeff it and be there!
