I took this shot on approach to Seatac Airport in 737-900. I used a polarized lens to create the rainbow effect in the water. Note: Space Needle (left) is painted “Galaxy Gold” (Bright Orange) for the 50th anniversary of the 1962 Worlds Fair in Seattle, Washington, USA.
April 27th 2012
Camera: Nikon D40x with polarized lens.

I live in beautiful Washington State, USA. Photography has been my passion for many years. I feel very fortunate to have lived here, my entire life. This great and diverse state is perfect for photography. I enjoy traveling and the great outdoors, the subject of much of my work. I also enjoy creating digital art and experimental photography. I’m adding new work all the time so, please visit often.

Best Wishes, Tori Snow
