Willamette Blue Hour

River Blues
River Blues | Portland | 2017

I successfully made it through the week and am now looking forward to a weekend in the Pacific Northwest. After work I drove into downtown for some later afternoon and blue hour shooting. Still fighting some jet lag after arriving in Portland two days ago  I’m much too tired to post process my photos, but after a quick scan I send all of us into a well deserved weekend with a photo I took on the famous Steel Bridge that crosses the Willamette River and provides great views across the river towards Broadway-and Fremont Bridges in the upcoming dusk.

Tomorrow I head out to the Oregon Shores of the Pacific Ocean. I’m so much looking forward to it!

The above photo was taken with the Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko 12-40mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom, specs are 1/25 sec @ f/2.8 and ISO 1600, handheld.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Wow Marcus, I freakin’ LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! Absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! You just made my morning seeing this – super inspirational for me to try to set my sites on getting a shot like this!! Then I read handheld and chuckled as I am far too shaky for that! Not that you asked 🙂 but..(like that ever stopped me ha). while this is not my fav photo of yours as I love the street /people shots (just my fav stuff-emotions captured I mean and your street stuff is great always), I feel this shot is spot on perfection so is my fav aesthetically hands down!
