The lights of busy Harbor Island across Elliott Bay are glowing golden in the incandescent blue light of the evening, illuminating this view of the West Seattle hills from 8th Avenue West. Completed in 1909 and expanded in 1967, it was once the largest artificial island in the world. It is still busy night and day and is the sight of many industrial, scientific, and shipping companies. You can just see the red-orange container cranes that line the mouth of the Duwamish Waterway to the left.
