Skywatch Friday #37 - Seattle, WA

I had to make a trip yesterday to Burien which is south of Seattle. As I was driving home, the sun was slowly creeping towards the horizon.

The buildings in the downtown area were lit up like crazy. By the time I made the decision to exit the freeway and find a place to park and take pictures, the light had changed. I still was able to get some decent pictures any way before the sun ducked behind a large cloud bank.

Seattle is such a beautiful city. You commented about the epilepsy day. I think it was more publicized in Canada than in the US...Michelle

That Seattle skyline shot is outstanding. You found a very good place to park.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I am complimented to be compared to Anna Pigeon. LOL However, I don't wear a gun. I just shoot my mouth off.

All three of them are beautiful, but my favorite would be the last picture. I love sunsets, and you've captured such a lovely sunset!

Really wonderful skies and the first one is truly enjoyable. Those skies have such airy and smoky texture.
