February 24th, 2011 – Jack Block Park Panorama

Jack Block Park is a somewhat obscure location in West Seattle. Created and managed by the Port of Seattle through tax levy funds, it was converted to a public park  from former industrial  uses. It offers some unique opportunities to see working port operations, ocean-going container ships as well as some wildlife including harbor seals, bald eagles and shorebirds. One of the coolest features of this 11 acre site is a 45 foot observation platform that provides an expansive view over Elliott Bay with a great view of the city. It is near perfect for a panorama and I  had the good fortune of being there for a sunset with some nice cloud formations.
