Foto-Finish Saturday - "Weather"

Hi everybody, I'm back!  When I started out I meant to do a post every day, but that's not necessary, is it?  Sometimes life has a way of jumping in!  Oh well ...  :o)

It's ironic that Barbara at Cat Patches chose "Weather" as this week's photo finish assignment because of all the devastation caused by the weather this past week.  This photo was taken during a windstorm on Thursday, March 10 in Seattle, Washington:

Waves are shown crashing against the State Route 520 Bridge as the sun sets over Lake Washington. During the evening commute winds gusting to 50 mph slowed traffic to a crawl and dumped water on cars stuck on the bridge.  Notice the sea gull silhouetted in the foreground.

I undestand that the bridge usually closes when wind gusts reach 50 mph for a 15 minute period, but for some reason this didn't happen on Thursday. 

Click on the Foto-Finish icon on the right to see other interpretations of the theme. 

Sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. Fantastic shot. Very interesting. Thanks for posting to Foto Finish.

  2. Your photo really captures the mood of the day - it looks really dangerous to be on the bridge in such weather

  3. Wow - so much movement in your shot!

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Love this photo. Very dynamic. Great light!
