Elliot bay Marina, Smith Cove

Smith cove marina
Equipment: Canon 20D, Canon 24-70mm
Image details: 32mm, f/8.0, 1/3sec, ISO 100

Elliot bay Marina is a beautiful marina tucked away at the base of Magnolia bluff. On the west side of the Marina you get some beautiful views of the Olympic mountains. On the east side of the Marina you have Downtown Seattle and Mount Rainier. Take your pick!
All along the marina you have a clear view of downtown Seattle. If you get there on a clear day on which you can see Mount Rainier you can do some some interesting compositions of the boats with Mount Rainier in the background. A few minutes after sunset the western edge of the Marina has beautiful views of the Olympic mountains. The marina also has a couple of very nice restaurants. If you have not been to Palisades I would highly recommend it.
