About this spot
Melrose Ave E is a perfect location to view and photograph the downtown core of Seattle. The numerous freeway overpasses in this area provide ideal locations to add bright streaks of taillights and headlights to the scene at dawn and dusk. Views from the barrier wall above the freeway extend over South Lake Union to the Space Needle and Olympic Mountain range. For graphic images, frame the streets tunneling between towering high rises.
