April 2nd, 2012: Seattle Nightscape

Today’s image was captured from a ferry-boat on a return trip from Hood Canal for a fun day of oyster & clam harvesting with relatives.   It was a challenge to get something decent with such low light combined with the motion of the moving vessel. I cranked the ISO up to 6400 to get a shutter speed of 1/30 of a second for this hand-held exposure.While a similar view can be taken from  a much more stable land position from across the bay, you get a slightly different  perspective shot from the water.
