This was taken from the draw bridge. About five minutes after taking this photo the bridge was opened up for a big barge. I took at few photos of it as well, but so far post processing on it is not up to my liking. There are probably better vantage points over down town Portland, but in my one night short stay I didn’t make there.
In travel book about Portland I read that Rose Garden has photographer dream of downtown Portland and Mountain Hood in the background. The following morning I got up super early and drove up to the Rose Garden. Of course no one was there at such early hour, roses were pretty, but downtown Portland was nowhere insight. Whoever wrote that damn travel book should be fired for misinformation.
