This is a popular spot for photographs of Seattle’s skyline. Basically, it’s at the foot of Amazon’s original headquarters, just above the international district.
Good night, Seattle.
We’re back in our home away from home (Taipei, Taiwan) after spending five weeks with family and friends in Seattle, Indianapolis and Palm Springs. It is always fun to get back home, start editing photos and seeing if any themes pop out. After quickly going through the haul of photos from this trip there was one theme that I’d like to share here, landscapes taken in and around Seattle. Of course I’m more than slightly biased in thinking that Seattle is a particularly photogenic city. I can’t help it, it will always be home.
If you’re looking for further details on the locations of any of these photos spots, don’t hesitate to ask. Happy shooting!
Looking south from the Magnolia neighborhood over the cruise ship docks. Occasionally, Mt. Rainier pops its head out near the skyline.
This is what most people think Seattle looks like 365 days a year.
This is the southerly view from the office of a friend. Interstate 5 runs right through the heart of the downtown corridor.
Taking a ferry always offers some unique views for the Puget Sound. If you look closely you can see this summer’s Super Moon in the top left side of the frame. Mt. Rainier is still mostly snow-covered at this point in the summer.
This was taken about two hours from Seattle in Port Townsend.
And finally, Seattle as you approach from an inbound ferry.
