A Columbia River sunset. A few pictures form the Interstate Bridge that connects Portland and Vancouver – WA.

Columbia River Sunset from the Interstate Bridge
A late evening shot from the Interstate Bridge on I-5.
The Columbia River, which flows here plays the border between the states of Washington and Oregon.
USA.
The above pictures were shot on a cell phone camera, and from a moving car; I just had to catch that late-evening light and that irresistible scene before we passed all of it.

    The great US plains and mountains create such dramatic landscape and sunsets…the second picture with the slanting grill / railing evokes so many emotions…

      And the Pacific Northwest is so, so beautiful.
      That was part of one of those bridges between WA and OR.

      Thank you, Prasad.

      It is.
      I've been through this area several times, but never got to spend some time around this part of the river. Later on, there should be a post about the area near the estuary of this river.

      Thank you. I wish I could have stopped and taken a picture. Better still if I had my SLR. Not that I'm great at low-light photography, but I'd have been a happier girl. 😀
