Hard to see in this camera phone photo but was interesting to see ‘home’ from the Blue Mountains outside Milton Freewater.
As I was coming home this evening I saw the rain clouds over Pasco and decided to drive down to the banks of the Columbia River to see if I could get an interesting photo. I did not have my ‘good’ camera with me so instead just used my camera phone, a Galaxy Nexus, to capture what I could.
The rain cloud photos did not turn out as I hoped but towards Rattlesnake Mountain I caught this photo of the sunset which I thought was worth sharing.

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.
