There is something about shooting photography in the midst of mother nature’s fury that adds an immense amount of adrenaline to the moment. After spending the weekend in Winthrop Washington enjoying the warm weather of the eastern half of the state, we headed back over the mountains. With the many trips I have made through this pass I have seen the most unbelievable shows put on by mother nature here in the Skagit River Gorge. The ever turning weather in the canyon mixed with a sunset can be an amazing experience here. On this day we came around the corner to see this scene unfolding before us! With out hesitation the car was stopped and the camera was high atop the tripod. The wind was just roaring through the valley, across Diablo Lake and up the cliff that I was perched on. The wind hit me so hard at one point that it literally took my breath away. With the clouds virtually boiling, the light rays were dancing across the surface of the lake. Standing there with mother nature breathing her fury down while I capture all the glory is a feeling that I am at a loss of words on how to describe. I can honestly say that the most exhilarating moments that I have had while enjoying photography have been while facing mother nature’s magical elements. In turn, the most exhilarating moments that I have had while facing mother nature’s magical elements have been while capturing it all with my camera!
