Photographer: Devin Metz , Federal Way Photo taken: Dec. 7, Saltwater State Park Photographer’s description: “When the sun started to set I took a walk over to Saltwater State Park and found this eye candy.” Critique: “Late fall sunsets present great opportunities to capture some lovely palettes of color. Great idea heading out to the waterside to photograph the sunset. The bird with its outstretched wings adds a nice point of contrast to complete the image.” Below is a gallery of previous Reader’s Lens picks. Share your recent photo from around the Northwest.
