Get Your Kicks on Pier 66

Pier 66: Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS

Please click on the image to see a larger version. This evening, I found myself strolling down Pier 66.  The view of downtown Seattle is very special from there.  If you’re lucky, the water will be calm and the foreground boats will be still enough to accommodate long exposures.  Even if there aren’t any interesting clouds in the sky, the stark blue hues of early night will offer great contrast for the colorful buildings.  I hope you enjoy the shot!

    Wow. Not bad Mahesh! It looks so perfect it’s almost not real! I don’t think you could’ve done a better job capturing this image. It’s beautiful…

    That’s too funny…I remember Route 66 well. This imagery is much much better than that drive.
    It makes our city look so very inviting…and warm. Lovely shot.

    It looks so crisp and clean too! Great shot! Some marketing company or the Chamber of Commerce might like this shot. I hope you give it a try!

    I actually remember the TV show–they drove the classic Corvette.

    Great shot and encourages me to get down to the waterfront, rarely take advantage.
