All photos were three second time exposures using a tripod and cable shutter release.
Some of the photos are from nearby displays, as usual several houses across the river put on big displays, and down near Elk Island someone else had a big display. Most of the photos are from downtown Portland using a 300mm lens.
These three our my favorites, especially the last one.
If you enlarge just one, I suggest it be this.
Photos at and around Willamette View

After the upper ponds were drained an resealed, an copper algicide was added to the water as they were being refilled. In addition to this colorless chemical, a concentrated blue dye was also added. Just one cup was all it took to created this tropical lagoon. The dye keeps some sunlight, which promotes algae growth, from hitting the bottom of the pool.
Residents of Willamette View who don't want to brave the 95-100º heat can see the from the common rooms of the Terrace, or just click on the photos below to enlarge them.
