Dawn Over the Cascades


My window on the world looks mostly to the west, but there is a spot in the building where I can catch the eastern horizon. One morning last May the conditions looked good for a sunrise shot. As it turned out I liked this early dawn scene better with the steeple on the left and the church domes on the right. Seattle is situated on a narrow isthmus between Puget Sound (an arm of the Pacific Ocean) and Lake Washington. The closer ridge in the photo is the summit of the isthmus. In the distance, The Cascade Mountain Range about 50 miles away. Be sure to click on the photo to see a larger image.
