Seattle This Morning

A couple of images of a magical morning, on this last morning in Seattle. The above image was shot with a little point and shoot of Jeff's. It was a very slow shutter speed, so it was quite blurry. I decided that the colors were too wonderful to ignore, so I applied a fun special effects filter to create this magical image. Again, it's the same view from the balcony as yesterday's.

This image was taken by Jeff a few minutes later. The rays of the sun only lasted a very few minutes. I played with accenting the colors that were there in nature, and did a bit of cropping, and what a glorious image of the morning.

Thanksgiving in Seattle

This image was shot early this morning from the deck/balcony of the house of Jeff's sister, Nancy & her husband, Lonnie. Isn't it magical looking? Nancy & Lonnie live in a town called Poulsbo, WA, just across the Puget Sound from Seattle. We actually look across at Seattle, altho I think the clouds are obscuring the lights from the city. I love the grey tones in this image - very moody.
This shot was shot a few minutes later as more clouds rolled in. Still very moody, but a bit more color to the morning. It's interesting how the day just seems to creep up on you.

And, finally, the sun actually makes an appearance, reflecting off the water. You still can't see the lights of Seattle, but it sure is a calming and pretty sight, isn't it?
