Space Needle/Seattle Center (Part 2) - Seattle, WA

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Today I have part 2 of the photos from Seattle Center and on top on the observation deck of the Space Needle. I split these photos into 2 parts. If you want to see part 1, go to the previous post. Hope you enjoy these photos.

The sun dips below the horizon. 


As you can see, the shot from the same angle from the previous post have very different lighting. Off in the distance you can see Mount Rainier. 

Two long exposures in the indoor part of the observation deck. 


I return to the bottom of the Space Needle, back to Seattle Center for some dusk and night photos.

I decided to do a few night long exposure of the Space Needle. Very beautiful at night. 


Guess what this is? It is the water fountain from above. Decided to do a bokeh shot of it. 

Another photo of the Space Needle and the water fountain. 

I got back to the street for another long exposure.
