Photo was taken from Crown Point along the Columbia River Gorge looking down river towards Portland, OR. I was traveling on business and my first trip to this area. Locals recommended going to Crown Point to get some sunset photo opportunities. It was overcast most of the afternoon and as I drove to the area I was less than optimistic about my chances. I waited in the parking area for over an hour and just as I was about to pack up, rays from the sun broke VERY BRIEFLY through the clouds. Persistence (and a positive attitude) are everything! I used Photomatix Pro to process the bracketed images.
