Olympic Iliad, Seattle

Photograph by Brian Poon, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

This is a photo of Seattle's Space Needle looking through the Olympic Iliad sculpture, both of which are located in Seattle Center.

(This photo and caption were submitted to Your Shot.)

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The color and shape of this structure are striking of course, but I really like how you get a glimpse of a familiar icon, the Space Needle, while looking through the abstraction of a less familiar one. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor

Beautiful!  Love the varying hues of red, as the light falls on different angles.

@Oktay Ortakcioglu Thank you for this comment. This shot happened towards the end of my aimless wandering for the day and it was very rewarding to take home.
