Well, I manged to capture a few frames before I was asked to leave with urgency. Really, I didn't see all those "No Tresspassing" signs ;)

Thank you all for the votes and nice comments :)
I felt lucky to find some nice lines and be able to fit that boat into the comp before I was kicked off the tracks.

Thanks Brent. I really enjoy Seattle when I used to visit more often. Friends used to live in Ballard and then West Seattle. Now they live in the burbs, and unfortunately I haven't been able to visit them as much. I always enjoy your photos and the images of the areas around Seattle, especially when they look somewhat familiar. Keep up the great work.

Congrats on the blue, great lines. Out of curiosity, is this the Salmon Bay Bridge?

Great lines and composition. Wonderful colors. Looks a bit over sharpened in some of the distant areas, but overall really nice. Congratulations on the win.

Well done Brent, congrats on the blue. Considering the short time available you were really lucky with the weather conditions and with having the boat in the frame :)

Well this is in the Ballard neighborhood where half of the residents are Norwegian Ken- so I think you guessed right, lol! ;)

Way to go, Brent! An easy 10 from me. And I actually thought this was shot in Norway. Duhhh.

Great shot Brent! Congrats on the blue. When I saw this I wondered to myself how long the photographer might have gotten at this spot before being thrown off!

Magnificent era image. Great lead in lines and sky. Bridge, river and boat are a bonus. Hope it does well for you.

Great color. You took an otherwise non-photogenic bridge and made it beautiful.
