I left the office as the sun was going down and immediately wished I had left earlier. The clouds were quite distinct and the sun was casting a beautiful orange glow over the whole western sky. I drove as quickly as I could dared down to the river where I hoped to get an unobstructed view of the setting sun over the river and Rattlesnake Mountain.

Even though I made record time down Columbia Center Blvd, the sun had definitely gone down a little further by the time I got down to the river. I hopped out of the car and took some photos from the parking area which gave a great view but then walked down to the causeway to get some water level shots as well.

I forgot I would be battling not just the setting sun but also mosquitoes! As soon as I got down to the causeway, the mosquitoes realized dinner had arrived. I also would make sure to put some bug spray in my camera pack!

All in all I am happy with the results. At least 2 of these will get enlarged to 8×12 and one of those might even get some more fancy treatment. Which is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.
