Lincoln Park Sunset

Clouds Over Ferry: Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II

I’ve lived in Seattle for 10 years, yet I’ve never visited Lincoln Park in West Seattle.  It was time to rectify that oversight.  This evening, Cindy, our two dogs, and I drove to Lincoln Park and hiked down to the beach.  The clouds were rolling in and made beautiful patterns in the sky.  I positioned myself to include the Vashon Island ferry in the foreground and angled my wide angle lens upward to give the overhead clouds that “sweeping” effect.  The above image was the best of my efforts.  In the image, I like how there is some clear sky just above the ferry.  Another beautiful summer evening in the Seattle area…better enjoy ‘em before the chill comes.

    This view, and your photo capturing the image, is why I love living in Seattle as well. Thanks for the encouragement to head out for Lincoln Park.

      Thanks, Linda. I was driving home from work and saw those beautiful clouds forming. I had to go somewhere to capture them. Lincoln Park won out.

    I suspect this was Monday night 30 August. We were on Bainbridge Island, Fay Bainbridge State Park watching the same clouds from the north. I did not have my camera, but loved the color in the clouds and what I think is called a Makerel sky, fortelling a coming storm.

      Stephen, thanks! This was actually take last night. Maybe I should call it “Holy Makerel Sky!” LOL!
