Seattle by Night

Seattle is such a photogenic city!  By day we have the Olympic mountains or the Cascades as a backdrop, sometimes we have Mt. Rainier looming over the shoulder of a building and by night we have a panoply of lights and the ever present Space Needle which despite being dominated in stature by many of the newer office blocks in Seattle is still a highly visible landmark from many directions.

This shot was taken from Newcastle Golf Course with a Canon 70-200 f2.8 USM IS lens on a 40D.
