Shadows and Reflections

Sunet over the Columbia River, Astoria, Oregon
May 25, 2010

Sunet over the Columbia River, Astoria, Oregon When I glanced up from the computer, I discovered one of the most glorious displays of evening light we've had all year. The drizzle and mist over the river caught the sun's fading light, turning the river into a wonderland.

What I really liked and tried to capture was the momentary straightness of the sun's reflection over the water as it poured through the gap in the hills. Between my first shots and this one, the sun moved just enough to take one of the piers of the bridge into its path.

Wonderful light in all of the shots! My favorite is the first one, too - the reflected light and the shadows work beautifully.
