The Moon Rising over Lake Union

Friday, June 6th, 2014

When the moon is rises over Capital Hill on a clear night, it just shines its glow across Lake Union. Our city is surrounded by water, so we are fortunate for the variety of views of its reflection on the lakes and sound.

I was alone on the dock shivering a bit as I took the photos.  In some ways, this sight is as great as fireworks!  It’s all natural and changing by the minute.  But there was no fan fare… no crowds.. in fact I could see no other person out taking in the sight.

The Space Needle just to the southwest is also all lit up glowing like a beacon over the city.
