The View from Crater Lake #40

It is hard to imagine how high Mt. Mazama once was. Approximately 6000 years ago the top blew off, leaving beautiful Crater Lake. This view is from the southeast side, looking towards the Klamath Basin lying flat and inviting miles and miles away. In spite of way too much draining, the Basin is still home to hundreds of thousands of waterfowl during migration.

Painted on Strathmore 400 series 140# cold press watercolor paper.

Wow, love that view. The trees in the foreground add so much. Lovely misty feel over the lake.

Classic atmospheric perspective, I really feel the distance and it is amazing how light your washes get far away.

This is gorgeous! and it is a special treat for me to see your image of it as I got to visit there last summer. Nicely done! I love the way that you have captured the trees at different distances into the view with color variations.
