Photo of the Week: Lewis and Clark Bridge

This bridge, over the Columbia River, is named after the Lewis and Clark Expedition of 1804. It connects the states of Washington and Oregon. I came across this bridge on my way to Astoria, OR and I used the first turnout to take this picture. It was taken on a rainy day and I got lucky that it just stopped raining when I arrived at the turnout. The view from here the turnout is great and really worth to stop for a picture if you are coming through this area. I like how the winds blow the smoke coming out of the chimneys away.

By the way, don’t confuse the names with Lois and Clark from Superman. The names sound similar but the bridge is not named after movie characters. 😉

The picture is a hand-held HDR of 3 exposures. After merging to an HDR-photo some editing in Lightroom was done.
