January 4th, 2011 Sunrise over the Columbia River Slew in Portland, Oregon, USA. It was a nice sunrise, but it did not compare to the day before! Mt Hood graces the background and the flat water is a rare sight in Portland. I was standing on the I-5 Bridge that crosses this slew. You can access it behinnd the Jantzen Beach Safeway store. Taken with a Canon 5D and a 75-300. Untouched

columbia, portland, oregon, sunrise

I have had a camera in my hand since the late sixties! Recently someone looked at a photo display I had in a coffee shop and got goose bumps. All I try to do is to capture various aspects of God’s amazing creation and let you also enjoy what I am seeing! If you get goose bumps, that’s great. But remember I only capture what he created. He creates, I capture, we enjoy.

  • Thanks, Di, it was great being back in the NW other than the Bronchitis. Glad we were there and real glad we are now back in the warmth of Hawaii.
