Downtown Colors

My wife has been out of town on a business this past week.  Last night on the way to pick her up at the airport I stopped downtown along the river with camera and tripod to take some exposures.  The reflections make the city look bigger.

It's been about a year since last doing night shots downtown.  Just when I was beginning to have fun I realized I needed to get to the airport. 

Lately the desire to do photography has all but dried up.  Going to a different location and going in the evening has given a boost to the desire.


  1. I love how you captured the colors reflecting on the water!
    Such a pretty city we have. :-)
    Beautiful shots

  2. Hi Mike, you definitely need to try something different and vary the subjects otherwise it tends to get boring. The change in seasons help a lot.

  3. I loved these. I need to take more evening shots, I have no experience with them, so it is time I learned!

  4. Farmgirl,
    Thank you. I agree, Portland is pretty and it's nice that it's so close to the country.

    Thank you for the encouragement. I think you're right, it's time for spring!

    Thank you. If weather permits take your camera out tonight! :)

  5. Personaly I thought they were great, ihave always enjoyed your pics
