This was one of last night's test shots to try to keep the exposure right with the rapidly diminishing light. I wish the shutter speed would have been fast enough so that there was no motion blur in the barge being pushed out into the river laden with fireworks but you work with what you have. What caught me was the sky, the roiling clouds that look so angry. Portland is, without a doubt, a beautiful city.
