Almost-full moon rise over Capital Hill and I-5 Freeway through Eastlake. This long exposure shot is straight out of the camera except for the border and copyright text. The blue lighting you see under the freeway is part of the art installation "Seventh Climate (Paradise Reconsidered)" at the newly opened I-5 Colonnade Park. This reclaimed bit of turf under the freeway is called "the first ever urban mountain bike skills park" by its creators, the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance (formerly Backcountry Bicycle Trails Club). A joint project of EMBA and Seattle City Parks, I-5 Colonnade Park's bike skills facilities were built by volunteers who donated over 7000 hours of labor to create the city's newest, and possibly most unique park. I took this shot three nights after the park's grand opening in September, and that line across the moon was a jet in flight.
