Gorgeous sunset over the Columbia River

Yesterday was a busy day running errands in Portland from 7AM till we got home at around 3PM. I was totally spent and needed to get a million things in the office but was feeling like I absolutely needed to get outside and shoot some photos. Even though it was hazy, cold, and pretty much ugly out I headed to one of my favorite spots and then hiked about a mile to get the best view. It wasn't looking like much when I got there but then the sky all the sudden opened up and I was blessed with the most incredible sunset ever! I brought two cameras and two tripods and was shooting like crazy. So much fun!
Here is just one shot to give you an idea. I unfortunately don't have time to work on all the others but here is a preview at least!

What you see in the photo is the Columbia River Gorge, city of Hood River Oregon on the left, Bingen Washington on the right, and the Hood River toll bridge connecting the two states.

No fair! I can only have one great Franger photo as my desktop default at a time.

Hey Blaine. Sweet picture. I am writing a thesis paper about the Columbia River Basin and need to include a photo. I choose this one! Beautiful. I will give you full credit of course.

Thanks,
