Downtown Seattle from eastside

Downtown seattle and the Olympic mountains
Equipment: Canon 20D, Canon 100-400mm
Image details: 400mm, f/14, 1/250sec, ISO 400

The eastside offers some interesting views of Seattle. The best view is from the skyscrapers in Bellevue downtown. If you have a friend working in any of these buildings you might be able to get to the roof to snap some interesting shots.

A good time for these shots is in winter around Jan to March. You will get your best shots the days following a snow storm. Try to shoot early in the day as it tends to get cloudy later in the day and you will not have a good view of the mountains.

I snapped this shot from the roof of the Eastgate park and ride. Its not the best place for this shot, but it was the best I could find. I shot 6 shots and stitched them together to build this panorama.

Directions to the Eastgate Park and ride.
