Photo of the Week: The Dalles Dam

The name already tells you what you see in the photo. I was in The Dalles for a couple of days and on my way back to the hotel during night I saw the illumination of the dam. I had to grab my camera and take a picture of the dam. The dam itself is very photogenic even during day-time hours.

The Dalles is a small town on the Columbia River. A great place for a small adventurous trip. I really enjoyed exploring this area and it was my first time in this region. I also took this stunning photo of the clouds with my smartphone. You can see Mount Hood in the background. The Instagram Photo is unedited and with no filters.

For the Photographer:

This is a long exposure HDR. When I captured the images it was so dark, I couldn’t even see where I am walking. HDR made it possible to show even the dark foreground. Thanks to my Manfrotto tripod it was a quick setup. What really inspired me taking a picture, were the blue, red and yellow lights across the dam. This made the dam almost look like a christmas tree, ehmm sorry christmas dam. 😉
