11-15-10 Storm Brewing

Space Needle, Seattle

This shot is taken from my office window, I didn't even go outside. That sort of seems like a cop out somehow.

My walk to the bus tonight was WINDY. I tried to capture the wind with my camera but I was literally so buffeted by the wind that I could not hold still enough to take a shot. There were signs blown over, tree limbs down and at one point I was nearly blown out of the crosswalk crossing the street. So, this is my shot for the day.

My lights keep blinking, I'm going to stop typing and push the save button.
I am happy, you can be inside away the wind :)
Not bad view at all seen safely from your room.
Snowy greetings from East Finland!

Sounds like violent weather with you. The shot's neat though, very nice cloud formations - alto cirrus included ...a sign of high wind would you believe:-)

I have always wanted to go there. I've been to the one in Niagara Falls, Canada. They have a restaurant that rotates...Very cool place at night with a view of the Falls lit up in every color.

@isisweiss the Space Needle has a rotating restaurant at the top as well. It'll cost you a pretty penny but on a clear day the view is great.

Love the light on this, really great shot. And lucky you, what a view from the office :-) !

This is a lovely shot, Shannon. Not a cop out at all. This project is about photographing your daily life in all its manifestations so this is great to see.

Thank you @lehy @ellida @kirsty @artistmichelle @girlie @gill and @jonna. I must confess that while this is the view from my office I had to telephoto to get past all the power lines between me and the Needle. And @jonna sorry to disappoint, but I think those lovely misty clouds are sun reflections on my office window. They do look cool though.
