This year I visited Seattle, WA as part of my trip to the west coast. I was only there a short time and was having some trouble finding good spots to take photos of the city skyline. I spoke to my friend Caroline and she recommended a great spot up a nearby hill. From there I was able to get the 'postcard-style' landscape shot of the skyline. I was there for several hours, the lighting at each stage made for some very interesting variations (early evening, dusk, night). I also found the original Starbucks location and took some photos of people feeding seagulls by hand at the local fish 'n' chips shop.
