Description: The story behind this photo is that Flying out of Bend to Portland or Seattle we are often treated to amazing views of the Cascade mountains from the air. This shot was taken on a short flight from Seattle to Bend (Redmond) and the lighting was one of those fleeting moments that happens once in a while. To me, this picture represents the great Pacific Northwest.
