Space Needle (Seattle, Washington)

The spaceship shaped top of the space needle looms large over Seattle, Washington as it has since it was built for the 1962 World’s Fair. Like the Eiffel Tower in Paris the structure was built specifically for this event and has withstood the test of time.

It was a stormy day in Seattle (typical) and I zoomed in as tight on the tower as I could (this is my Tamron 270 lens at full extension). I liked the simplicity of the structure embedded against the interesting texture of the clouds behind it. In Lightroom I added a heavy vignette to center the focal point on the needle and also desaturated some of the colors.
