There are times when identifying the city, state and country where a photo is taken is rather unnecessary. Seattle is the only city on earth with a skyline like this, featuring a well-known structure which is so easy to identify.
The Space Needle was built in the early 1960's as the centerpiece for the 1962 World's Fair. A man named Edward Carlson originally sketched the tower on a napkin while visiting a coffee shop in 1959. The rest, as they say, is history.

A nice sharp photo of this pleasant skyline. The golden lights go well with the deep blue sky. A good point of view that puts the Space Needle front and off-centre.
