Here is a closer look at the tree composed of 1200 lights atop the Space Needle seen in yesterday's shot. If you would like to look out from among those lights at the top of the Needle right now, check out the live web cam that lets you manipulate which direction you are looking out upon in the 360 degree view. You can even choose a "time lapse" view of several time periods during the last 24 hours. Those are fun and you can see the lights do move in the wind, and the Needle casts its own shadow on the ground if you look north at the sunrise time lapse for today.

Hi Kim, thanks for the link to the web cam. I wasn't aware of that one. Hope you're staying warm ... brrr!

Kat said...

Aww, that's so beautiful! A stunning thing got even more stunning for Christmas :-) And yeah, I think it's pretty cold in Seattle today, even colder than here... weird. >.>

Both of the Space Needle shots are quintessential Seattle, Kim!
