The photographer says: "This is a picture of the lighthouse out on the west most point of Alki beach in West Seattle where I live. You can see the outline of the Olympic Mountains in the distance. As you are not able to "trespass" on the Coast Guard property, I had to get a little creative with this shot while also minimizing the distraction of the bordering fence. So I used the fence as a dividing line in the final composition instead. Just as the sun set, there were several birds flying about just gliding in the light wind. They were watching the seal in the water below them waiting for any "leftovers". At first I was hoping that they would just leave for a quick sec and leave my placid scene alone. But in the end, I decided that they definitely added to the overall mood, after all, this was their home!"
