08 Oct 12. With good friends (neighbors) of 8 years during our D.C. tour visiting two weeks ago, we did a little traveling along the western side of Hood Canal taking in a few of the sights. One we visited for the first time was Mt Walker and we drove to the summit to see the view from the two viewpoints. As you arrive at the destination you are greeted by a sign that says "Viewpoint" with an arrow underneath the word pointing in both directions. It is somewhat of a humorous sign and reminded me of the saying "he went that away" with the speaker pointing in both directions, 180 degrees opposite the other, with both thumbs. As it turned out, on our visit the south viewpoint offered some spectacular views while the northern one was basically a dud. This image is one from an HDR series but is just one of the frames in a five shot sequence. The original is a bit on the hazy side and somewhat lacking in contrast, so I had to work it over a small amount to bring out all the detail that was captured in the shot. Sharp eyes will not only find a rather interesting perspective of Seattle, but may also notice the rising moon. They may also pick out the two sports arenas as well as several of the major buildings in the city and the Space Needle. Critical enlarging will also identify the tower at SeaTac. Those same eyes may also find a building or two in Bellevue where I used to work as a barber in my college years. D300s; Aperture Priority; 18 - 200; ISO 200; 1/50 sec @ f /16 on a tripod.
