Seattle Moonrise

For Seattle native and Your Shot photographer Tim Durkan, photographing the city's iconic Space Needle never gets old. And last summer, Durkan was in the right place at the right time to capture this shot. "The full moon rose just after sunset," he remembers, "and took on quite the moody appearance behind some clouds." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
