This is an HDR toned photo of a small part of Seattle's skyline and its many high-rises and skyscrapers. The condominiums along the waterfront are some of the most desirable places to live in the city because of their views of Puget Sound and all of the boat traffic.
Columbia Center is the tallest skyscraper in the downtown Seattle skyline, as well as the tallest building in the State of Washington, and the Pacific Northwest region of North America; it is 76 stories high.

Seattle's warehouse district is replete with ambiance and atmosphere, like this sign from an earlier time.
