This red barn in the Hood River pear orchards is perfectly sited to include a sunrise view of Mt. Hood in the background. I was happy to get there in time to see the sunrise and watch as the clouds turned pink before making this image. Hood River is famous for its pears but not everyone gets to see the pear orchards in bloom, which I think is just as wonderful as the pears. It was a very special morning with the pink sunrise and mountain in view while the birds work up and chirped and the orchard filled with the sound of honeybees busy at work.
