Portland & Western Hillsboro Local Trip to Seghers
Author: nomosantafe

Last Thursday, we had a very sunny day and I got over to Hillsboro, OR and shot the Portland & Western Hillsboro Local making a trip to the Stimson Mill at Seghers.

I finished the day by going back to Portland to photograph Mt Hood at Sunset.

Here's some pictures from that trip.

I hurried back to Portland getting to my photo spot on Terwilliger Blvd at 4:35, just 10 minutes before sunset.

13.  Last shot of the day - Mt Hood at sunset.  This is one of the reasons it's so great to be back in Oregon.  Nothing like this in Texas!

That is a fantastic series of pictures. The first three in the thick trees and shadows are exceptional! Thanks for sharing.

A very interesting post with some nice angles. Cool to see the long hood forward photos and the afternoon light. That last photo of Mount Hood is a great finish to your post.

A great series, and to think the spirit of the Santa Fe lives on in Oregon with paint that still looks really good on that GP39-2!
