Sunrise over the Willamette River

Portland is a great place for sunrise and sunset photography. There is usually some kind of weather happening. On this morning, I was on the bus headed into the office. The clouds started to breakup and I got the feeling that something awesome may be coming. I hopped off the bus at the next stop and quickly made my way to Waterfront Park.

Once I was in position, the sky exploded and I rolled off a dozen or so shots in the next ten minutes. The clouds moved as did the light. In the end, this was my favorite.
