Night Photography at Gasworks Park

Added by Kyle Szegedi

Awesome views of downtown Seattle and easily accessible hangout spot near UW with great photo opportunities.

Everyone knows Gasworks Park for its awesome views of downtown Seattle. A great spot during anytime of the year, the park is even beautiful at night, when you can see reflections of the city lights in Lake Union. Make sure you bring a tripod to capture some awesome long exposure images!

During the day, you will see lots of people chilling on blankets and having picnics, and in the evening, a lot of UW students walk down the park, as it is only one or two miles from campus.

Great spot to grab some long exposures. I did a time lapse of the sun going down and all the lights coming on in the city (hope to upload soon) Very chill spot. Make sure to get there early to get a good spot. Gas works park is pretty cool all in itself.
