Night Time Cityscape

 

This is hands down one my most favorite shots!
 
From this vantage point you capture the real essence of the Seattle cityscape.  I waited until the twinkling lights of the city buildings came on and the Space Needle was completely illuminated.
 
Seattle is an amazing city.  The contrast of a major metropolitan area that is surrounded by water, the Cascade Mountains, and the Olympic Mountains.   Within 30-60 minutes time one can find them self completely in the most rural and ruff terrain nature has to offer!   The Olympic Peninsula  just west of Seattle across the Puget Sound by ferry is home to America’s only temperate rain forest.
