On this cold morning I wanted to convey how amazingly Seattle is nestled between the water and the mountains. A long lens is the best way to compress space and pull things optically closer together in the frame, but how do you capture a wide scene with a big lens? PANORAMIC MERGER is the answer... I used my 70-20mm and Really Right Stuff Panoramic adaptor to get just what I wanted. 

Seattle is such a fun city. The city itself the Sound, the Cascades, the islands, Olympic National Park. It's the jumping off point for so many of my favorite remembered adventures. If you haven't been here, put it on the list.

Oh yeah, they've got a decent football team too... ;-)
