Sneak Peak

Changing Clocks

Loosing one hour of our day on a nice spring day is very unpleasant, but that what we had to do today. At least we’ll have longer evenings now.

Seattle at Night

Prior to my last trip to Seattle I did some research on where all of the most iconic Seattle photos were taken. One of the spots is at Dr Jose Rizal Park. With Seattle weather, being mostly grey during the winter time, I arrived on a super clear night, with no single cloud in the sky, so after landing, the first thing I did is went straight to that park to take a few photos, it could be my only opportunity to take these photos before clouds and rain come back to the city. I walked around the park and took photos from different vantage points. This one was taken at a very low point, actually if I remember right, not even at the park itself, but one of the service roads, right beneath it.

  1. What a contrast. It’s almost as if the tree represents rural life and the city, urban life. Nature vs. concrete. Well done.

    A wonderful shot of the city skyline. Good plan to go when the sky was clear.
    Would have been a shame to miss the opportunity.
    Hope you will consider hosting Flat Ruthie for an adventure.

    Beautiful picture. On the clock- I begin to feel those precious 3 minute a day gains right after Christmas. I would’nt mind losing an hour of a day for the daylight. 🙂

  4. Ciao, what a great shot, interesting juxtaposition of nature versus city. Lynne

    Nice! I’ve been waiting for a clear day like this before heading up to the park. I’ve been there in the daytime, and i’m looking forward to going back!

    I need to take a trip to the park…it would make a nice change from my usually east facing perspective of the city

  9. Beautiful shot Dimitrii. I love the way you’ve composed this and how you’ve given the tree such prominence in the composition.

    Stunning shot Dimitri – great light and shadow. Cheers.

  11. Gorgeous shot! The time change is tough to adjust to but oh so nice to have that extra daylight–definitely looking forward to it!!
