The street is Seneca Ave. SW in Renton. It is the half on the south side of I405. If you look on Google Maps, satellite view, you can see the cell tower there.

Took a trip to Astoria last week. One of the most astonishing things was the Jetty at the mouth of the Columbia. Nothing I could shoot can come close to the full impact, but if you want a full-size pano (1024 pixels high) click the full size link below each image.

Nice one, Steve...I've been through Astoria several times and just haven't found it to be particularly photogenic; but that's a great perspective.

It would have helped if it hadn't been so overcast, but I did find quite a few interesting things there to shoot at, especially when the clouds started breaking up.

This is the Column there on the highest hill in Astoria (169 steps straight up):

Saturday I'm going to be doing the Upper Big Quilcine Trail to Marmot Pass (external link) with two friends from church. Bringing along the 7D, the 17-50 and the 70-200. It's a 5.3mi (one way) trek with 3500ft of elevation gain. I'm not in shape, so I'll probably be dying. That said, I am REALLY looking forward to this.

We're spending the night, so I hope to get some star trails!

Take some bananas; they'll help with the leg cramps :) Sounds like a fun trip...hope you get some great shots!

Hey ... if there are no "no parking" signs on the Fremont bridge in Portland, hope it's okay to park to the side where there's 8' to 9' between the lanes and rail. Liked how the sky looked this week.

Just flew back from San Jose after a weekend near the Calaveras Giant Sequoias. Sky view over Oregon.

:cool:

Trip got cancelled. The guy leading got called to work for Saturday night. Neither of the remaining two people (myself included) felt comfortable as neither of us has ever backpacked anywhere.

I drive over that bridge twice a day and it has one of the best views of Portland, IMO. I always think about how I want to stop and take a couple photos. If there's no "No Parking" signs, no one can really say anything, huh?

When I drove out to experiment with the shots the other night, I headed there northbound on the lower deck, but noticed it seemed quite a bit different than the upper deck, even though its maybe just a 25 foot difference in elevation.

So I exited, reversed southbound on I-5 and parked on the city center side of the upper deck.

For a minute I thought you were a serious weenie about not being in shape, because I misread your post as 350 feet elevation gain.

Ha !!

3500 feet ... much different. That's more than sufficient.
