Six Pilings, Elliot Bay, WA

This image is looking from Seattle to Bainbridge Island on Elliot Bay. I was inspired to see this image by Michael Kenna's photographs in his book on Japan. I like the serene water contrasting with the black wood pilings, and the soft billowing clouds over the dark landmass in the distance. The different textures and brightness of the image give life to the black shapes of the pilings.
