Please click on the image to see a larger version. Yesterday, I visited Picnic Point Park in Edmonds, WA. It’s about a 20-30 min drive from Seattle and offers outstanding views of Puget Sound, Whidbey Island and the Olympics. Last evening, the mountains were obscured by the clouds, but the quality of the light was nice nonetheless. I waited for the setting sun to peek out through a break in the distant clouds before taking the photograph. The relatively small aperture (f/11) helped obtain that sunburst effect on the light, and there was just enough illumination to provide some side lighting to the foreground pylons.
