Guest Photo of the Day: Mount Hood

Mount Hood by Randy Craig
Randy Craig is a local (Portland area) photographer who shows equal aptitude at taking beautiful landscape photographs and beautiful portrait and fine art photographs. That's a great skill. I like this particular shot of Mount Hood because it'so beautifully colored and crisp, but also because the composition is so good, with the bright maple reaching upward in the foreground reinforcing the mountain soaring in the background. You see a similar adeptness in Craig's minimalist photo of the Oregon dunes, sculpted by the wind into a shape as beautiful and sensual as a woman's body. (And for good measure, check out the version with both.)
