Tags:photos, portland

On my way this morning to pick up tillyjane to go hiking, I had to stop the car twice to try to shoot the sunrise.


The sun had just cleared the north shoulder of Mount Hood (sixty miles east, this photo is facing just west of north), and the downtown buildings were lit very oddly.


In my mom’s neighborhood. Note the crepuscular rays.

As usual, more at the Flickr set.

Sweet pics! I love it when buildings light up like that from the sun. I need to make my way up to Portland again someday. It's only two hours away, but with gas prices the way they are, it's hard.

Bad brain. Every time I see the word "crepuscular" my brain first says "craptacular". *sigh*

My you were up early and you could operate a camera. I am impressed. Very nice photos too.

Thank you. If I were smarter, or owned a better camera, they might have been more cool, but I'm pretty darned happy.
