Seattle doesn't look so much like the "emerald city" in this night shot, but it still glows in an amazing way. This is a long exposure looking south across Lake Union. You can see the lights of a fast moving large pleasure boat on the left as it heads west, and there is even a bit of air traffic captured in the sky. The downtown core of high rises sure generates some high wattage light spill.
