Getting up REAL high in the tallest building in Seattle in time for twilight was an awesome point of view for "blue hour". The building in the lower left corner of the frame is Smith Tower and when it was built it was the tallest building west of the MIssissippi for many years. Now look at how dwarfed it appears! The rest of this view takes in Elliott Bay, the SODO district, Pioneer Square and West Seattle.
