Portland is the largest city in the state of Oregon on the west coast of the US. However, it is the smallest city I will be visiting in the country. Even still, I wanted to see if I could capture a photograph of the skyline. This was taken from the south east side of Portland looking across the Williamette River. On the left is the Hawthrone Bridge. It is the oldest lift bridge in the US, built in 1910. When I was scouting out locations during the day the bridge was closed for repairs with the lift span in the middle raised up. Fortunately the bridge reopened before I was setting up for this photograph.
