I woke up early with the intention of taking pictures of the sunrise from Kerry Park. Little did I know there was going to be fog. This is one of the first pictures that I got off before the fog became so thick and high that I could barely see the top of the Space Needle (in the foreground) and Mount Rainier (on the right).
I've taken a handful of shots from here before - take a look at what it looks like without the fog.

Wow! apart from Seattle always reminding me of world famous sitcom Frasier ;o) My only reaction is WOW. This is a very beautiful shot especially the large version, I have nothing constructive to say so I'll stop..

Very nice and impressive panoramic shot, it seems like everything is emerging from clouds, I've never seen such a thick fog. The dawn light and the colours are superb. Well done!

Excellent panorama. Space Needle really does look like a flying saucer sticking out of the clouds. The contrast with the mountain is pretty amazing too. The pink sky gives a great atmosphere too.

Well, there's not much more to say. This is a case of right place at right time. Your composition is great and the pic resulted great. Congratulations!

Great shot Brian - really a fantastic image - almost science fiction - I'm travelling to Vancouver in three weeks and was thinking of coming across the border to see Seattle - didn't realise it was on another planet!
best wishes Kev

really outstanding shot ! it seems to be on an other planet. These colours are making your shot very mysterious.
You were lucky to have such a fog but you could make a great picture.

Wonderful post, such a rare view, unique and qith beautiful colours. About the long post, some noise reduction could have been done.

Wow - that looks like a view from another planet. I wish I could add more that 2 points.

Excellent photo!!! I've never seen a scene above the fog, and now I now it's worth seeing it. I like the way space needle protrudes from the fog, and the pinkish effect of the sky. Well done!!!

Wow this is one of my favorit pitures on TE. The lighting is perfect, and the color is amazing. I have seen thousands of pictures of Seattle, but i have never seen one like this. Way to take a creative shot.
