Isn't photography a fun hobby? It just keeps on entertaining us. Here are 10 of our photos taken on November 27, 2015 ... a gorgeous, clear, cold day in the Northwest. [Please click on pics for larger view.]
Mid-day we enjoyed the sight of a Matson container ship arriving in Elliott Bay, aka Port of Seattle. Our main reason for posting this photo is to show you the clear blue skies on this day. That was the setup for what we expected to be a sweet sunset so we decided to walk to Kerry Park, a good spot to catch the sun dropping below the horizon.
|A clear afternoon in Seattle had us looking forward to a chance
for capturing a nice sunset later. In this photo a Matson container
ship is arriving in Port.
|We walked up to Kerry Park to capture the sunset.
It was kind of surprising to find out how many other folks had the same idea to go to Kerry Park. Of course, this is "THE" spot for an overlook photo of downtown Seattle. While we were most interested in the actual sunset, it looked like most of the photographers wanted to capture the sunset glow on the skyline of the city. For those of you who are not familiar with Seattle, if you ever visit and take one of those "tour bus" outings to see the highlights of the city, they will probably stop here and let you take a look and/or your own photos.
In the photo above, it appears that the lady near the center is holding a large scope to her eye, but the scope is actually behind her and she is trying to capture the scene with her smartphone camera. The photo below shows the scene most of the photographers seemed interested in capturing. That "bump" on the right side is Mt Rainier (14,410 feet in height), about 50 miles to the south of the city, adding its beauty to the scene on this clear evening.
|Smartphone captures worked for many.
|We thought this was a pretty good crowd of watchers and
|A few of the more "serious" photographers.
|We snapped this to show you that thing in the sky right in the center.
Can you see it up above the trees? Looks like a bird or ...
|We will close this post with this last pic we took of the sunset.
We thought it turned out pretty good ... how do you like it?
