How many people outside of the Pacific Northwest know that Seattle is known as the Emerald City? I have no idea if that is a reference to Oz, I guess I could probably Google it, but not sure I really care all that much. I love Seattle, and it might shock some, but I was never much of a fan of The Wizard of Oz.
This shot was made on a recent photo trip to Seattle and was captured from the west side on Alki Beach. I hope you enjoy it, and as always, please click on the image to see a larger version.
