Summer’s coming to a end here in Portland Oregon and we wanted to make sure we took advantage of the great weather. So we pulled our scooters out of the garage, packed up the gear and headed out. We ended up under the south side of the Fremont Bridge (I405) right on the waterfront. What a great view of the clouds, blue skies, and the bridge. Time to start taking photos.
For this panoramic photo I ended up taking a total of 30 pictures that I planned on putting together with Photomatix Pro and Adobe Photoshop CS5. After loading them into Adobe Lightroom 3 I ran them through Photomatix Pro ending up with 10 photos. Then into Photoshop to merge all 10 of the HRD photos created in Photomatix Pro, a little clean-up, and done. I think the results came out pretty nice.
The Fremont Bridge is a steel tied arch bridge over the Willamette River located in Portland, Oregon. It carries Interstate 405 and US 30 traffic between downtown and North Portland where it intersects with I-5. It has the longest main span of any bridge in Oregon and is the second longest tied arch bridge in the world.
The bridge has two decks carrying vehicular traffic, each with four lanes. The upper deck is signed westbound on US 30 and southbound on I-405. The lower deck is signed eastbound on US 30 and northbound on I-405.
