Description This shot of the Seattle skyline was taken from Gasworks Park at the north end of Lake Union around the Summer Solstice. For about a week at this time of year, the setting sun reflects off the top of that building creating a spectacular beam of light ala Raiders of the Lost Ark when Indiana Jones is using the crystal in the map room to determine the whereabouts of the Ark. There is a period of time every evening that the top of that building is a blinding mirror of the sun that it is impossible to look at directly. I wonder if the architect is aware of this incredible light display due to his or her creation.
Howard Goldstein, Seattle Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement Howard Goldstein has lived in Seattle since 1991 after falling in love with the natural beauty of the Northwest. Five years ago he began taking long urban hikes and bike rides around Seattle with his camera in search of solace from the stress and chaos of life. His beautiful photographs are the result of a passionate man slowing down to enjoy the flowers on his path. What you see are precious moments in time reflecting Howard's Jewish light in the world. He considers it an honor to share them with you and hopes you are equally inspired to slow down and enjoy the flowers in your world.
