Dynamic Seattle Light

Spring is here... and we are finally starling to get some breaks in the weather. This shot was taken a couple of weeks ago on a day that had otherwise been rather gray and boring. But I looked out my window and saw that there was potential for a nice sunset to form and reflect against the clouds. I only had about 30 minutes and it was rush hour but I decided to risk it. I ended up getting to the 12th Street bridge just 5 minutes before sunset and man am I glad I made the trek! This was one of those "are you kidding me, is this real?" moments.

 

About the shot, I chose the Rizal bridge to try out my filters from Fotodiox for my Nikon 14-24 wide angle lens. I'm pretty happy with the results. I also went to the Rizal bridge for a bit of revenge! I had been to this bridge 2 other times during the previous week on days that I thought the sunset was going to be great only to watch the inevitable cloud of doom move in and the sunset ended up being a bust. This was payback, I got you this time oh elusive sunset! (shakes fist at sky)
