Alki - Beach Drive

Beach drive is on the west side of Alki. Very few people make it to this side of Alki - most of the crowd is on the other side. There are a couple of interesting spots on Beach drive. Beach drive has great views of sunset over the sound in the summer.

Sunset over Alki
Equipment: Canon 20D, Canon 24-70mm
Image details: 43mm, f/8.0, 1/25sec, ISO 100

There is a small beach with rocks and driftwood at the very beginning of beach drive. The rocks can be used for some very interesting compositions at sunset.

If you go a little further you will find a cement lookout with a view of the entire sound. This spot is interesting on a day with lots of clouds in the sky. At sunset you can make some very interesting compositions.
