This one hit it right on the nose, the big Oktoberfest celebration in the Willamette Valley takes place in Mt. Angel, home to the Mt. Angel Abbey and now celebrating it's 45th year of oompah bands and bratwurst. The huge goblets of pink are really quite a site on this hybrid and they seem to know exactly when the lager will be flowing because they started blooming two days before the celebration. I know it's of German origins but does anyone know it's parentage?

Again just messing around with the exposure compensation, by this point the fires have died out a bit and the haze has lifeted from the valley. The colors are once again clearer and brighter.
