This image of one of the towers of Portland's Custom House is composed of 20 individual shots taken at 200mm. I took these shots about 10 minutes before sunrise from the roof of the garage across the street from the Custom House. The garage does not open until seven, which was too late to catch the sunrise, even on this January morning. However, the long term parkers can get in early, so I waited until one of them opened the gate, and then walked in. The views from the various floors of this garage permit unusual vantage points.
