Sunset over the Columbia
Sunsets like this one over the Columbia River and Cape Disappointment in Washington don't happen every day, but they do happen often enough. A few people will always be out enjoying them on the River Walk or from any vantage point on the hill. Sometimes the clouds are high in the sky and dramatic. Other times, like today, a fog bank or low clouds come in off the ocean and add variety to the horizon. I love the way the high, smooth clouds catch the color and diffuse it. The bridge is the same one you've seen before with the two tall towers over the shipping lane. This is the more northern end of the 4-plus-mile Astoria-Megler Bridge from Oregon to Washington. Ah, yes. Have a happy Mellow Yellow Monday.
