Fire on Water
One of the great amenities of living in Seattle is our proximity to Puget Sound and Elliott Bay, which could be considered our front yard. I’ve always felt the pull of the tides from these great waters and love spending time in and around them. This time of the year is usually when we get our best weather and on occasion we’re treated to some very nice sunsets.
Although I didn’t have time to plan this shoot and the exposures were not optimal, I was fortunate to be observe this beautiful light show. A bit of post-processing work yeilded a reasonably acceptable image to help preserve a great memory.
