Good Morning Seattle by hjl on Flickr.
This was a fortunate angle while making the turn above Puget Sound when the landing pattern is from the north. Those really are a second set of mountains in the distance, poking up through a broad-but-thin deck of clouds and haze that has some gaps above Seattle. So you’re seeing the city and Lake Washington from under the clouds, the bottom of the mountains are obscured by haze, and the tops of the mountains are clear, because it’s mostly above the clouds.
