One more reason to love Seattle

So here is why I love Seattle. I get up in the morning, there is sunrisish outside my window. Can't see well bcoz of too many trees (don't love that part). Anyway I get up, get ready, head out to take the bus to office. The road seems slick and slippery, happy that I don't have to drive. And then I came upon this breathtaking view of Olympic ranges in front. I have never seen Olympics this clearly, different ranges were visible. And in front of that a glimpse of lake washington. The only glitch in this scenery was the hill of Seattle homes between lake and mountains. Else this was a perfect painting if nature. Made my day.

Seattle sunsets

Did I ever mention that Seattle gets the most beautiful sunsets (everytime sun is out). I have never seen a usual sunset here, every sunset is full of vivid colours over beautiful mountain range. All this is made possible by the constant cloud cover, and presence of Olympic Mountains. The combination makes every sunset unique. I am sure this is true for sunrises, but they are harder to come as cloud cover is usually thicker in the morning. And then I can see sunset from my office window, but cannot see sunrise. I think I am going to make it a point to capture all sunsets from now on, use my digicam :)
