Sun on Seattle

Looking out the window here this morning (May 3, 2014) presented a somewhat unusual scene. Clouds AND sun.  Heavy overcast to the west provided a nice backdrop to the city basking in bright sunlight coming in from a break in the clouds on the eastern horizon shortly after sunrise. Grabbed the camera and snapped a few quick shots for this little panorama.

The tall building in the center is Two Union Tower at 56 floors. Tallest in town, although it looks smaller in this perspective, is at the left, Columbia Tower at 75. Seattle is currently experiencing a new construction boom. We are concerned that our weather propaganda --- rainy and cold --- is no longer working its magic. Folks are moving in here like crazy --- and staying!

Thanks for stopping by John's Island. Coming soon: Transit of the Panama Canal.


  1. The light on the buildings is beautiful.

  2. Lovely photo. I laughed when you mentioned weather propaganda as that is what we Vancouverites are guilty of too. We've had a building boom for years so I guess the propaganda isn't working :-)

  3. It looked a little like this in Bellingham yesterday, too. We got a few sun breaks but mostly those dark clouds. Last night it rained here very hard! :-)

  4. I always love seeing gray clouds like this. With the sun peeking around, it makes for some great light.

  5. Just want to say your article is as astonishing. The clarity in your post is just great and i can assume you're an expert on this subject.This is a really well written article.I am hoping to give a contribution & aid different customers like its helped me. Good job.

Mostly Mt Rainier

Back to Mt. Rainier 2024 ... At the entrance gate the Ranger provided a map of the Park and a sheet of info for Spring 2024.  I was careful ...
