Sunset in Seattle

September 05, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

After walking all day in Seattle we went to a great pizza restaurant in the Queen Anne Hill district of Seattle.  After dinner we went to see the sunset at Kerry Park which is on the south slope of Queen Anne Hill.  Kerry Park was given to the city in 1927 by Mr. and Mrs. Albert Sperry Kerry Sr. so that all who stopped at the site could enjoy the view.  We certainly did!  The view encompasses downtown Seattle, Elliot Bay, the West Seattle peninsula, Bainbridge Island and Mount Ranier.  


We arrived quite a while before sunset so the Wendy and I enjoyed the views while the guys went for coffee.

You can just see Mount Rainier in the right  hand corner.


When the guys came back we drove just down the road so we could actually see where the sun was setting over the water. There were some great colors in the sky.


Again, no clouds to add interest  and color (so much for all of the rain in the north east) but I still liked this sunset.


One last shot of the sunset in this area.


We returned to our first spot to photograph downtown  now that it was getting darker.

Mount Rainier stands out in this photo.
