Blue skies, peakin' at me, nothin' but blue skies do I see.

I lucked out and saw this hole in the clouds in time to grab my camera and take this photo through the tinted window at work, not an optimum photo-taking circumstance, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Before I forget to tell you, my Nikon D50 is home! Hip, hip, hooray! That's Marquam Hill in the foreground; it's just southwest of downtown Portland.

P.S. Tomorrow I'll finish up Blazer Hoop-de-doo! at http://mamamepdx.blogspot.com/
Come take a look at more stunts (one involves pizza), a hovering inflatable car, the outta sight scoreboard, Blaze (the team's mascot), the Blazer Dancers and a fast little girl on a tricycle. You'll be glad you did.

Great timing for the shot. You must be living right for the clouds to open up for you:)

I enjoyed the "Blazer Hoop-de-doo!" series. I'm thinking of going to some Celtics games this year - it looks to be an exciting year for us too.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Wow! What a capture. Great title for your post, too. You should be quite pleased with this one. Isn't it wonderful the skyshows you get in Portland. I was down there last month and really enjoyed taking some shots through the car window at sunset. Thanks for sharing this one,

This is so beautiful. The sky is amazingly beautiful and extremely hard to capture in photos (at least for me!), great job!

I love "hole in the clouds" photos. I see them all the time here in Fort Lauderdale, but rarely have my camera in hand to capture them. I got one recently, and may post it. This is very nice.

Wow, what a great shot !

The cloud formed a nice frame around the tower. Yes, it is a perfect capture.

Gotta love those rare moments of blue sky on an otherwise typical rainy Oregon day ;)
