"Spellbound" - Oregon

Exclusive Limited Edition of 45

Very intensely watching all the online weather reports, radar, web cams… I decided to chase three severe thunderstorm cells to Crater Lake three days in a row. In 13 years of doing landscape photography full time I don’t know if I have ever witnessed such a spectacular show of light or as much lightening! On this evening, I took 2150 images in about an hour and a half, using two cameras, running back and forth between them. The Ranger next to me said that in 12 years of working at Crater Lake, hiking daily and often hiking the rim on his days off, he had never seen anything like it.
