Seattle Trip, 2019: A Bird’s Eye View

On one of Seattle’s infamous rainy days I decided to engage in some indoor activities, including an elevator ride to the Sky View Observatory of Columbia Center, the tallest building in Washington. The observation deck offers great views of the city through clean glass, and it’s easy to get good shots with very little glass reflection.

The Columbia Center also features a snack and drink bar, so you can grab a glass of wine and enjoy the scenery from one of the window-side tables. Many people actually prefer the views here to the ones at the Space Needle. For one thing, the Columbia Center is taller and much less crowded, and for another, you can’t take a photo of the Space Needle if you’re inside of it. 🙂

Here are some of the photos I shot during my time up there. Click on any image to open a gallery.
