Mount St. Helens, with part of Mount Adams in the background, broods over a salmon-colored sunrise and the Columbia River in this shot from the 'Dismal Nitch' area east of the Astoria-Megler Bridge on Wednesday morning. This is Bill Wagner's last shot as a staff member of The Daily News, and it is fitting because it features the Columbia, one of Bill's favorite subjects. Be sure to look in Friday's edition for a double truck of Bill's best photos from his three-decade TDN career. And a podcast interview with Bill will go live Thursday morning on TDN.com. Lest you think you've seen the last of Bill's work, though, the sun has not set on his career. He'll contribute photos as a freelancer from time to time. For Bill, photography and nature are a tug as powerful as the pull of the mighty river.
