I'm under the impression that that's an incredible amount of zoom, judging by the position where you've mapped the photo. And yet you can clearly distinguish the downtown's most notable buildings and, of course, the space needle. I like it! It's pretty unique, and Seattle looks beautiful, like a gigantic urban enclave (if that makes sense at all!) in the middle of water and mountains.

Thank you Andres. This was taken with my 100-400 zoom at 210mm. I do have a full size sensor and I cropped it a bit. That is the Bangor Submarine base in the foreground. Mt Walker is the highest viewpoint in the eastern Olympic Mountains you can drive to, spectacular view. Unfortunately it was a bit hazy and overcast when I was there. I plan on going back when conditions are better.

The best to you my friend

Have you been here WT? You have to hit it on just the right weather pattern. I want to go back again when it's the first day of a high. Thanks

I have not been there, but it looks wonderful. If I am ever in the area when the weather is right I am definitely going to stop by. Best Wishes, Chris
