4543 x 2000, 13 photos, taken 4th of July from 9:49-50 AM. This is BNSF Railroad's Bridge over the Duwamish River, seen from under the West Seattle Bridge from a top the SW Spokane Street Bridge. The railroad bridge is still used, although not that often. But as you can see, it is a draw bridge and by default it is kept in a raised position. Mostly for sailboats, I presume. The bridge that I took the photos from likewise gets out of the way of the sailboats, but by having the center piece swivel rather than rise. The West Seattle Bridge? It is so far up it doesn't have to worry about sailboats. If you look closely, on the left Mt. Rainier makes an appearance.
