Through the Clouds“, Mt. Hood, Japanese Gardens, Portland, Oregon

This image was taken from inside of the Japanese Gardens located in Downtown Portland. On sunny days Mt. Hood is quite visible in all its glory. We lucked out on the day we were at the gardens as the skies were partly cloudy when generally means Mt. Hood would be enveloped in a thick cloud layer. I was thrilled when I saw that the tip was visible through the thick cloud layer. (This image shot with permission from the Japanese Gardens.)
