Fresh snowfall and ice in a remote section of the Columbia River Gorge in February 2014. The first rays of sunlight add a touch of warmth to this otherwise icy scene. Conditions like this are extremely rare in the gorge and only occur every 4 to 5 years.
I hope when you view this image you feel some of the cold which I felt that morning in the gorge! It was extremely cold out there!
