Portland Skyline at Blue Hour

Facebook | Twitter | 500px | HDR | Oregon HDR | Blue Hour HDR | My HDR Tutorial

 

I just got back from the best trip ever! I got to see almost the entire Pacific Northwest, and shoot so many iconic scenes. I drove down the Washington and Oregon Coast on my way to Portland with some friends of mine. My first stop was the amazing Cannon Beach on the Oregon Coast. My flickr friends David, Joe, and Jit were amazing hosts and showed me and my friends so many places in Portland that the average tourist might not find. I took over a 1000 photos on my journey, and will have a photo a day to post for quite a while.This shot is from across the Hawthorne Bridge from Downtown Portland... Hope you like it as much as I do. =D

 

A HUGE THANK YOU to David, Joe, and Jit for making my trip a great one! You can find their streams on the right! =D
