The rising autumn sun pours down the windswept gorge of the mighty Columbia River, and shines a warm dawn light over the elegant buildings of aging Fort Columbia. Reflections of warm morning colors glimmer on damp tideflats, and paint the rocky perimeter of the fort in subtle hues. A sleeping forest of ancient trees rises above, rays of amber light lancing through the canopy, stirring the woodland birds to wakefulness.

It's hard to find appropriate weather conditions for flying along the Columbia River, as its deep valley cuts through the mountains and channels strong winds down it to the sea. I was able to take advantage of the quiet conditions of early morning to film this video. I also had to find a good takeoff location outside of the state park, as it is a long and difficult process to get permission to fly in Washington State Parks.

I've also posted a photo gallery on my blog:  https://illuminationsfromtheattic.blogspot.com/2019/10/sunrise-at-fort-columbia.html
