Seattle Skyline from Queen Anne

View from Queen Anne late in the afternoon in Winter.

Shot of Seattle’s skyline from Kerry Park in Queen Anne neighborhood (located northwest of downtown) taken on a Friday afternoon just a couple days before Christmas. If you look at the top of the Space Needle, there’s a Christmas Tree that lights up in the evening.

The park on this high hill, the highest in the city, gives you a great view of the city and surrounding Puget Sound. This image was taken with a telephoto to zoom in closer on the buildings. A standard or wide angle lens will capture much more and make the skyline look smaller in comparison from this vista point.

Click here to see where Kerry Park is located in Google Maps. I was standing on top of one of the benches available when I took this. There are stairs leading down to the playground area that will give you a different perspective of the skyline.
