A Little Liberty – Alki Beach

Lady Liberty at Alki: Sony A77, Sony 16-50mm f/2.8

Please click on images to see larger versions. I’ve always wanted to photograph the Little Lady Liberty at Alki Beach, but the lighting was never to my liking…until tonight. ┬áThe Statue of Liberty, a small replica of the original “Liberty Enlightening the World” in New York City, was a gift from Reginald H. Parsons and the Seattle Council of the Boy Scouts of America in 1952. The statue has become such a symbol of liberty and courage that it became a place to mourn, to reflect, and to leave mementos after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

    Very nice! I’ve been meaning to get out to Alki for a long time; I didn’t realize they had a replica of the Statue of Liberty.

    I was outside for yesterday’s sunset, as well. The sky really felt three-dimensional and layered, and the most interesting colors surprisingly ended up being to the East, like you’ve captured beautifully here. I guess all that wind helped produce some good clouds.

    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog yesterday.

    If I didn’t know any better, I’d think you were in New York yesterday :)

    Very nice and a great sky. We have that when there are clouds, too. Nice shots of the replica and the sky.
