Portland's Christmas Tree, Seen at Pioneer Courthouse Square

DSC_0519_cropped

No rain meant some folks were out and about at Pioneer Courthouse Square, having their photo taken in front of the beautifully lit Christmas tree after work Wednesday evening. I'm still not thrilled with my photos of the tree, though, so I hope to return and try again, maybe this weekend. I'll have to pay attention to the weather report and make a plan. I soon as I typed "make a plan," this entered my mind: There is a Blazers' game Saturday evening at 7 p.m.--if it's not raining too hard, I could head downtown early enough to take a few photos, certainly from a different perspective. Then I can catch the MAX right there across the street in front of the courthouse.

What a huge, beautiful tree! I really like those multi-colored lights, something you don't see much of around here anymore.

Oh it is so pretty this year! I rarely get down to see the tree, so thanks for sharing, Lynette!

Lynette, this is a wonderful photo of the tree and its environs. Sure, go take others, but there is nothing wrong with this one.

It's a beautiful tree (ours is nowhere this pretty) and I love the lights too. How funny your brain shifted into photographer auto-mode, or maybe just super-organized mode!:)

What a beautiful tree! If you're not happy with this amazing photo, I look forward to what the "good" ones will look like!

That is a nice photo. I used to love make Pioneer square my turn around destination when I worked in the Southeast industiral area. Thank you for posting photos of my old home town.
