The evening light promised to be nice, after a gray day, and I headed up to Rocky Butte, a small park nearby that is situated at the top of one of the extinct volcanoes dotting the east side of Portland.  I’m not sure why I don’t come here more often.  I prefer Mt Tabor for overall atmosphere, but when I go there I often am stuck for subjects to photograph.  Rocky Butte has better, more unobstructed views, and the small park at the summit is notable for its nice rock walls and old-style lanterns.  Views extend north over the Columbia River and east towards the Gorge.  While photographing the beautiful lanterns against the glowing sky, I spotted a young couple sitting on the rock wall.  They had a great view of the sunset, but were clearly oblivious to the outside world.
