Tipping The Scale

Nightowls Pittock Mansion Meetup, Portland, Oregon


I met up with the Nightowls for a Moonrise at the Pittock Mansion last night. We were promised a centered Moon above the tip of Mount Hood. I got out my big lens and zoomed right on in. I've wanted this for a long time so now it's one more thing I can check off my bucket list.


Happy Friday Everybody!

    These are the types of photographs photographers live for! Pat yourself on the back for this one Greg. P.S. Last time I was at Pittock Mansion, my rental car got stuck in the snow and I had to call a tow truck to get me off the hill.
