Seattle Meets Gotham

Early morning moodiness and reflections of the Seattle skyline on Lake Union with fog hovering above the skyscrapers. The image was captured around 5:50am. The conditions were very foggy, but with just enough fog hovering in the sky to reveal the skyline with the downtown buildings below, complemented by their illumination reflected on Lake Union in the foreground. This was a 30-second exposure which creates the long streaks of colorful lights reflected on the surface of the lake. In effect, the goal was to capture the mood, which contrasts with the feel of a sunrise or sunset. This mood or atmosphere is darker, more gothic, and enigmatic.
