Willamette Blue Hour

River Blues

River Blues |ย Portland |ย 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 ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!
