Active, quiet, acrobatic and poetic.

All are words to describe the images submitted this summer to our “Interpret the Wind” contest.

On this page are the 13 photos sent to us since May by readers of Hood River News and published periodically in the newspaper.

When we announced “Interpret the Wind” (yes, a spin on the play title “Inherit the Wind”), we said creativity and originality would be the main criteria.

“The wind helps define the Gorge, so how well do the photos tell a story or create a mood?”

The deadline was Aug. 20. Our panel of judges will review the images and we will announce a winner in early September.
