Golden Seattle

The weather in Seattle last week, as in many other parts of the western US, has been exceptional! This is a view from Kerry Park of the downtown area with Mt Rainer in the background. You can see a nearly full super moon on the left. This is a 7-shot vertical pano, 32-bit HDR image. I seldom use any other HDR effects anymore. Hard to shoot when the light is changing by the minute. But the results are worth the effort. The original is about 70 megapixels.

    I love the balance with Mt. Rainier on the right and the moon high on the left. They both seem to be revolving around the space needle.

    Gosh! This shot surpasses my superlatives!
    The HDR imaging was worth the effort.
    The color and detail is incredible.
    And the visibility of the evening paid off.
    The distance from Kerry Park to the summit of Mt. Rainier is
    61 miles / 98 kilometers ᵘˢᶥᶰᵍ ᴳᵒᵒᵍᴵᵉ ᴱᵃʳᵗʰ ···· ᵂʰᵉʷ
