BLACKHOLE SUN(SET). Thanks for coming and washing away the rain. 🎶 Thanks for tagging #theevergrey, John and Lisa! (📸: @merrillimages)

We love a summer evening stop at Gas Works Park. Because who can resist snapping a gorgeous sunset pic?

Want more inspo for where to go? Check out our roundup of sunset photo lookouts that you helped us assemble. 😉

“We enjoy photographing Gas Works at dusk because there’s so much to shoot,” wrote John and Lisa Merrill of merrillimages.com, who took the photo above. “Silhouettes on the hill, illuminated Seattle skyline, and sometimes (if we’re lucky) fire and light dancers!”
