The beauty of the sunset is often blinding, so I have developed the habit of looking away from the sunset to see the splashes of gold, peach, and orange hues the sun casts over everything as it bids farewell and rushes on to brighten someone else’s life. From Kerry Park, Seattle, Washington.
After I finished shooting the Seattle skyline through the golden and blue hours, I was on my way to my car when I saw a monument with large circular holes in each side. There should be a picture here somewhere I thought. Then I saw this image and captured it.

Each time I have been to Seattle the weather has prevented me from photographing Mt. Rainier. Once when I was flying back to the East Coast I looked out of my window just in time to see Mt Rainier pushing its way up through the clouds. Glad to be in a window seat and have a clean window for a change, I grabbed my wife’s camera and made this image. Sometimes the best pictures come after we think all hope is gone.
