In my last post I mentioned taking a bunch of pics of the view from this little park overlooking the city. I've stitched those into a panorama for today's post. These panoramas become huge files, so the pic below is very reduced.
The view here looks to the south and, if you look carefully, you'll see Mt. Rainier in the distance. The pros like to wait for a sunset to get the light just right on the mountain along with reflections from the buildings for a really spectacular photo.
The pictures were taken on Sunday, January 2, which was one of several beautiful, but cold, sunny days in a row. The body of water on the right side is Elliott Bay, a part of Puget Sound. The Sound connects to the Pacific Ocean via the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Seattle is not actually on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.
If you would like to see a slightly larger view, I posted one here.
Thanks for visiting the Island.
