Corbett Ave Overpass

I drove past this overpass crossing the I-5 in South Portland heading home from Camera Solutions. It's rare to find an overpass crossing a major highway that's not protected by a fence, so this scene immediately caught my attention. I returned the next day during dusk to photograph this scene.

Ross Island Bridge and Mt. St. Helens can be seen in the distant background.

Just off to the right of this frame, I noticed a little blue shed. I love the contrast between the busy highway and this seemingly peaceful shed that's just sitting right beside it. I turned my camera that direction and took a shot. The tell standing trees and Mt. Hood in the background adds to the tranquility of the scene.
