A view looking north from Beacon Hill. Visible are King Street Station's clock tower, Smith Tower, Qwest Field, the Space Needle, and many Belltown, downtown and Pioneer Square buildings. That's Queen Anne Hill in the background with the broadcasting tower. The common "post card" view of the city skyline that you've seen a gazillion times is taken from Kerry Park on that hill, so this is the view from the opposite direction. Those rain clouds are still bringing us showers today. To see skies around the world today, visit Skywatch Friday.
