Sleepy In Seattle

That houseboat on the left seems lit up like a cheerful lantern next to all those darkened liveaboards near it. These floating abodes are on the northernmost edge of the Westlake area of Lake Union. The cozy lamplight made me want to curl up on its deck in my jammies and slippers with a warm cup of Theo sipping chocolate and absorb the late night autumn reflections in the water. I was stopped on the Burke-Gilman Trail, just under the Aurora Bridge in Fremont gazing across the water when I took this. Full view of the scene here.

I was away since a few days and it's always so pleasant to stroll here, from one beautiful photo to another scene...Thank you for that!

This IS so cozy! I loved how you cropped it. The warmth of the colors is so rich despite it being a night time shot. Well done!

Kim said...

Thanks very much to each of you, and anyone who wants to can show up for chocolate and the view.

LMN, Thanks. It was a mild night despite earlier rain. BTW, this shot is not a crop, but a separate close up taken from the same place as the full view, so this is what I saw through the lens. It seemed so autumnal for a night shot, and not a pumpkin in sight! ;^)
