I ended up wandering the Eastbank Esplanade last evening as the sun set behind downtown Portland, Oregon. I got this handheld shot. Then I headed down to the Pearl District just after the sun set to see if I could catch a little of that blue-hour magic light. I shot some long exposures of the neon-lit streets. I'll post those later. But for now, here's my sunset across the Willamette River offering. Full disclosure: I had a little help from onOne Software in post.

Notice the white tents along the waterfront. It was under them that folks were enjoying the end of the Cinco de Mayo weekend. I was definitely on the quieter side of the river! :)
