Background on the webcam:
This webcam is located in Seattle, Washington.
The cam overlooks Lake Union (an in-city lake, located just north of downtown Seattle).
It's up 75 feet above the lake, on the eastern slopes of Queen Anne Hill.
The cam looks east, with best shots NE toward Gas Works Park (including I-5, the Ship Canal Bridge, with UW in the distance), and SE toward Capitol Hill and South Lake Union (with ZymoGynetics' unique 5 smoke stack old power generating building in prominence).
When the camera is live, you'll get a glimpse of a unique lake, with boaters (including world class mega-yachts, Duck Dodge race series sailboats, early morning crew races, rental canoe-ists and standup paddleboarders), We also have seaplanes and the Sleepless In Seattle movie houseboat (SIS is easy to see when the cam points NE...it's in the lower left hand corner of the picture).
When the cam is not live, you'll get a repeating cycle of previous shots captured from highlights seen from the hawk's nest here over the years.
