Here are my top 12 photos of 2020. Most of what I shot this year was either from my old house in West Seattle or the new house in Queen Anne. I managed to get out a few times, but the theme was mainly #StayHomeSaveLives. Thank you all for the support this year! #Seattle
1 - When the new year started with a cancelled fireworks at the #SpaceNeedle, we should've known we were in trouble 🙂 The laser show and the private fireworks that people set off made for a colorful photo anyway.
2 - March's #fullmoon was my most controversial photo of the year. The long lens shot from Bainbridge island making the moon look larger than life had people all over the country (it got some national media coverage) crying Photoshop 🙂 Trust me, it is a single shot.
3 - This larger than life view of #MountRainier from Bonney Lake is something that I really had to see for myself. It made for a nice road trip during the lockdown days and we had a lot of fun on the empty road.
4 - This crazy hailstorm that created those white ribbons moving over Space Needle is something I have never seen before! A sight I would've missed if I wasn't working from home.
5 - Thunderstorms are so rare around here, it is thrilling to photograph them when we get the chance. This happened in May and I didnt need to get out of the house to capture these. I miss this view from my west seattle house, it was the perfect spot for these storms.
6 - The "other mountain" behind space needle. I have had people literally losing their s%^& over this comp every time. Yes, zooming in on this scene makes it appear big, but to say that we can't even see #MountBaker from Seattle, always a fun comment thread on this.
7 - Another favorite view of mine, #MountRainier hovering over Seattle, it is a fun one to capture. Rainier doesn't get as much hate as Baker, but there is always a few that doubts this one too! Again, it is all real.
8 - Another one of Baker against Seattle. This was the view from my old house. I miss this view. I haven't seen many lenticular clouds over Baker from this far away, so it was a rare treat to see and capture this shot.
9 - This view of Space Needle is something I used to see every day, as it is in SLU where I work. This was the first time I went back there after we started WFH and it took me 30 minutes to get enough light trails in this photo, never thought I will miss SLU traffic!
10 - I included this August full moon here, as it shows the empty Needle. A sign of 2020. I am glad Space Needle has reopened again, this emptiness is just eerie.
11 - I didn't get out of town to capture any fall colors this year, so this view just a few blocks from my house that I discovered last fall is my only fall color photo of the year.
12- We always get amazing sunrises in fall and winter in Seattle but I used to sleep through those. This year I had no excuse, as I wake up to this view every day now and there is no commute to go to work. We got so many amazing sunrises this year it was hard to pick one!
