Night Photography at the OMSI Dock

Oregon OMSI

Added by Austin Jackson

This is an awesome photography spot in Portland with great reflections off of the river and is only about a two minute walk from parking.

Starting at OMSI, walk towards the Hawthorne bridge, and away from the Tillicum bridge. After about a tenth of a mile, you will see a dock and the Hawthorne bridge. Walk down on the dock, or take pictures from above. For added adventure, walk under the Hawthorne bridge and take pictures from the other side!

Beautiful!!!

Did this tonight!! Checking things off my photography bucket list. It is absolutely beautiful!! It was great practice for me as well. I need to work on my night photography as that is one area I am weaker in, and this was a beautiful place to practice. I will definitely be going back here again as I improve. The water reflections are insanely beautiful!! Don't pass this up!!
