A Day on the Seattle Waterfront

a framed photograph of a misty foggy day at Mount Rainier and Elliott Bay in Seattle

A cool misty morning on the water of Elliott Bay in Seattle provides a view of Mount Rainier rising out of the fog like a dream. The wind beat against us as we leaned forward urging the huge ferry forward through the green water. Like thirsty dogs we sniffed the sea scented air willing our bodies to remember every detail. The clouds parted and the sun came out. A rainbow appeared over the seaport of Seattle as a group of laughing people floated past us in their sailboat enjoying the warm sunlight. It was a moment to remember.

  4. All of them are very striking, but I'm partial to the last one. Something about the Needle and the sailboat in BW...!

  5. Thanks for the comments! I have to agree with Laurie and Harold. Those two are my favorites of this group too. They have very different moods so it is hard for me to choose.

  8. Your photos always take me to "the place."

    If I get to Seattle some day, I will feel that I've been there because of your recent photos.

    Nice shots, as usual. I don't know the photographer's lingo, but I always feel that everything is so well proportioned, that you capture just the right amount of everything.

  25. I should think there are people whose greatest passion is photographing Mt. Rainier to the exclusion of almost everything else. Of the photos above, I most like the sailboat though.

  26. Love the B&W with the sailboat. Classic.

  27. It is a great view of Mt. Rainier. Somehow a mountain that always is snow covered and is over 14,200 feet tall never fails to look good, especially when viewed from sea level, even from 75 miles away.

    It is beautiful but I think the other two actually capture more of the essence of Seattle. The large, very modern buildings set behind the ages old waterfront are a striking contrast to each other and the rainbow is a wonderful addition. As to the sailboat, Seattle has always been known as the pleasure boat capital of the country with a higher percentage of boats to residents than anyplace else in the USA. Your photo does a great job of showing how boating is enjoyed in the Seattle area.
