It was another beautiful day in downtown Portland on Sunday. It may have been a little overcast and somewhat chilly but that didn’t keep people from hanging outside in downtown. I had a friend visiting from Orange County, so I decided to take him to Portland so he could test out several of his recently purchased lenses. I figured that the walking tour around the business district and the museum district would be a good start. We finished the day at the waterfront, near the Hawthorne bridge again. The cloud’s had formed into popcorn style shapes, which made for a great landscape since the sun was in a perfect position to create plenty of backlight.

The sky nor the sun did me any favors but it was nice to spend the day along the water. It really felt more like the middle of spring rather than the last week of February. Due to only a few of the vegetation blooming, I wasn’t very satisfied with 99% of my photos. The Willamette was pretty dark, which also didn’t help. However, I did find some great spots that I will return to once the trees and plants bloom more. Gotta love the Portland waterfront when the sun is out. Especially when it’s in February.
