Merry Christmas from Tacoma

Merry Christmas from Tacoma! One of my presents came early when I found this scene yesterday during some beautiful sunny winter skies. Today, it is overcast again with snow forecast for tonight – so Tanya and I are hoping for a white Christmas in the morning. But if not, we can always get a view of snow by just looking at The Mountain (at least when it isn’t covered by clouds). Thank go out to my photographer buddy, Ernie Misner, for telling me about the location for this shot. Have a tremendous holiday season everyone!

    • Sorry you missed the snow; it’s mostly melted here today, so we just had it on Christmas. All the best in the new year.

    • Thank you. I hope your Christmas was wonderful. I was in Spain at Christmas time a couple years ago. Wonderful place for the holidays.

  4. Indeed you were blessed with some lovely winter light for this beauty Joe! That newish building to the right makes this view a bit more difficult than it was. Wishing you all the best with your extraordinary creative vision in the coming year Joe, and Merry Christmas my friend! ❤

    • Thanks Ernie. I originally shot with the clock tower on the left, but that building (and another further to the south) were distracting so I moved to put the tower on the right. I’m afraid with all the new building going on in downtown Tacoma, we are slowly losing some good views. Hope you had a great Christmas. We must get together sometime in the new year and go shooting.
