Dew, or rain drops, I’m not sure which, on a piece of grass on Leif Ericsson Drive in Portland, Oregon at the point where you come out of the woods and the trail splits with an overlook of north Portland and Vancouver (that blurry brown color in the background).

On a side note, IE6 users, I apologize for the two errors I found after going live last week; one with the hover navigation over the photos and the other when replying to a comment — those should be resolved at this time. Please email me or post a comment if you encounter any further errors anywhere on the site.

  • this one is stunning. the shapes and colors in the background fit so well with the foreground. (thanks for the Vancouver comments)

  • This was one of the coolest places to mountain bike in Portland because you were up in this dense forest literally above the city.

  • Did you have to get up early for this one ?

  • @mjm not as I recall. I think it was around midday but I can’t remember for sure :)
