Mt. Hood

Here’s what Mt. Hood looked like on my way home Friday. As you can see, by the time I got to this point the sun was mostly down (this was around 6:00pm or so) which I was actually kind of grateful for. Most of the way the sun was at that exact position where it’s low enough that the sun visor on my helmet was of no use, so it was directly in my eyes, forcing me to look down at the pavement for most of the ride, only looking up occasionally to watch for cars pulling out in front of me from driveways and side streets and such. This was the best shot I could get quickly, sans tripod:

It was pretty hazy, but you can see the mountain is already covered with a nice layer of snow.

I used the camera’s “Simple” (aka auto) mode. For the camera buffs, here are the specs:

Camera: Panasonic DMC-FZ7
Shutter speed: 1/100 sec
Aperture value: F4.0
