Black and White 2016 — photo 52 of 134: From the grounds of Pittock Mansion in Forest Park, in the Tualatin Mountains, an awesome early-morning view of Portland, Oregon, and points further east. In the background looms the 11,249-foot Mount Hood (the highest peak in the state), about 50 miles away. Summer solstice 2016.
The many buildings of downtown Portland are too numerous to list here. However, I have marked many of them in a Google Earth file which you can download here. Hint: be sure to enable the 3D Buildings option. For more details about this Google Earth file, see my article A Portland Google Earth Companion. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
