Sunset in Discovery Park, Seattle

I was walking from Ballard Lock to the West Point Lighthouse and arrived just before sunset.

Following a trail that goes from the park entrance to the beach, I ended up at a fairy tale like exit.

I was getting close to the lighthouse, but sunset had just begun.

All the sails are heading back to the dock before night falls.

I couldn't make it to the lighthouse, so I just found a spot with no obstacles and took the photos.

And there were seagulls everywhere.

Look at all those sails that I mentioned.

The sun is going dooooooown...

That's it for the sunset.

Then, I continue walking to the lighthouse, hoping that it wouldn't be too dark by the time I get there.

That's Mount Rainier.

Here's the West Point Lighthouse with a dude jogging.

It's almost 8PM, and I still had to walk 30 minutes uphill to the bus stop. Temperature is dropping fast, and I was wearing just a shirt.

The Auto Sears 80-200mm F/4 Macro isn't that bad after all, especially when I paid less than 20 for the lens that came with a Ricoh KR-10 Super SLR camera. Thanks for viewing!
