Hurrying to beat the sun into the sky. Taken last week at the Alvord Desert in Oregon. Photo is just as it came from the camera except for being resized and slightly tilted.

Beautiful shot, QDM! We don't get sunsets like that over on the west side of the Cascades! And, I haven't been down to the Alvord Desert region yet, either - I'll have to make a point of visiting it one of these years.

We don't? I've got dozens of orange and pink sky photos from the valley... Maybe Portland doesn't get 'em, but Salem certainly does.

Nice shot, BTW !

Well, I don't get 'em in Wilsonville! ...and I am sad for it. I've gotten great rainbows but not any great sunsets. It might be because to the west we have some hills and so I can't see the sun low enough in the sky. Or... maybe I am just not attentive enough...

Thanks for the good feedback guys. A trip to the Alvord Desert is well worth the 8 hour drive from the valley. There are several good hot springs in the area for a good soak, including a small lake the temp of bath water. Be sure to drive from French Glen to the top of the Steens also. Incredible views of Keiger Gorge and the Alvord Desert.
