The Emerald City

Emerald City

Seattle, the Emerald City, at night.

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.
