Great shots...

Lots of construction cranes! I haven't been to Seattle in years. It's probably a whole different city by now.

Mt Rainier is a gorgeous one, aint he?

I used to penpalling with somebody from Seattle. This skyline looks familiar maybe because the Needle. Is it visible from every point of the city?
And, as usual very impresive highways :-)

Don't be making Mount Rainier giggle. I just put him to bed.

Great skies. Rather Seattle like with the gray and just a touch of color. Especially like Rainer peeking through.

The mountain shot is surreal. At first glance, it is another cloud. on second glance, it is a beautiful mountain.

Sally: Two of Seattle's landmarks captured in all its glory. Any day you can see the mountain is a good day.

Driving towards a mountain must give some other kind of perspective.

Beautiful skies. Nice shots.

You can tell it's early....the freeway's not crowded. Hee, hee! Great shot of the space needle against those billowy gray skies. Mt. Rainier is splendid - so majestic as it hides behind the soft layers of clouds.

5.30? Wow! Mt Rainier looks spectacular! I thought it was a cloud, at first; I' not used to seeing such high mountains :)

Both are marvelous! The second reminds me of a few I captured of Mt Shasta under similar conditions.
Hugs and blessings,

Two first class photos of a most beautiful part of the country. The Space Needle and city-line is great and the freeway shot with Mount Rainier is impressive. What a beautiful mountain. I wish I paid it more attention when we visited a few years back, but sure loved going up to the top of the Space Needle and walking around the city. I'm going to have to get back there one day. I hope so!
