*AWARD WINNERS* — photo 40 of 75: For the next Corvallis Photography Meetup Club "60-second exposures" photo challenge shot, I set up on First Street in downtown Albany just after sunset, facing southwest. The clouds were moving during the 60 seconds the camera shutter was open, given them a soft, smeared look. November 2011.
SEPTEMBER 2017 UPDATE: I just discovered that this picture is the first main photo on the Downtown Albany Web site. Cool!
