Top Ten in the Pacific Northwest Sunrise/Sunset challenge
I took this photo of the Puget Sound (with the Olympic Mountains in the background) about two miles from my home in Richmond Beach (Shoreline, WA). The water was smooth as glass that night, which gives it the appearance of a painting. This photo has not been altered in any way. It’s kind of a funny story how I took the photo. I was in the car, trying to get to the beach in time and I realized I would not make it in time for a great photo opportunity. I turned around and drove into a neighborhood with great views, stopped in someone’s driveway (yes, this is the view from their home!), rolled down the window and took two shots – this was one of them. It’s one of my favorite photos I’ve taken.
