"For a long time I've been a fan of Hood River. It’s a beautiful place, nestled on the banks of the Columbia River filled with breweries and good people. But the overwhelming draw to the area has always been Mt. Hood. Being from Seattle originally, I never thought I’d forsake my precious Mt. Rainier in favor of adopting another “home mountain,” but in the long years since I moved to Portland, the slender silhouette of Mt. Hood has become intrinsic to my mental model of what a mountain is. It isn't a matter of Mt. Hood being more picturesque or awe-inspiring than its hulking cousin to the north. It simply has assumed a place in my mind as the quintessential mountain."

I was going through my photography from the last few years and realized that I've spent the better half of a decade capturing this peak through the progressive march of seasons. First from one vantage point, and then another as I discovered new points of view and ways to get closer. It’s kind of a beautiful, ongoing journey… and I'd like to share it with you.

Come take a look!

I'm a designer, illustrator, and photographer living in Portland, Oregon. A native-born Pacific Northwesterner, I find inspiration in the landscape around me, science, nature, and fine craftsmanship of any sort.

When I'm not adding to my collection of panoramic photography, woodworking, or refining my home-brewed ale recipes, I work as a principal designer at Ziba Design in downtown Portland. For updates on my various projects, follow me on Twitter via sirgerg.
