Outdoor Photographer magazine is running a contest on the theme “Celebrate the Seasons”. On a whim, I entered the contest and this photo has made it to the finals. You can view the photo in the contest gallery at http://www2.outdoorphotographer.com/celebrate/gallery-fin-lg.php?gal=Top%20Pics&id=2110#j , and if you’re so inclined, vote for this photo for the Peoples Choice awards.
Waldo Lake is a favorite destination in Oregon’s Cascade Mountains, especially for people from the Eugene area. Located almost on the crest of the Cascades, with the Pacific Crest Trail running nearby and a 21-mile hiking & mounain biking trail encircling the lake, Waldo is one of the purest lakes in the world – on a calm day canoeists and kayakers can see to a depth of 120 feet.
