Cheyenne Sophia by Lassen Davis in Sauvie Island, Oregon

I was helping my friend Cheyenne with her photo project out on Sauvie Island this winter. The drive out there is beautiful, but when we started heading back home around dusk it was even more breathtaking. The sunset was casting a purple haze over everything, and the cold moist air created a beautiful fog that covered the fields. We didn’t make it far before pulling over to take some more photos.
