This is the real Mt. Rainier view from the Seattle to Bainbridge ferry as you come into Seattle. Just south of downtown is the industrial area where the container ships are loaded and unloaded. Usually you see Mt. Rainier with a beautiful foreground of downtown (which is typically shot from Queen Anne Hill), so I thought I'd give you all a different view:
ETA: this was taken with the 18-200 VR. And mom (Gemini :) ), the reason Mt. Rainier looks like it's RIGHT there is from using a long telephoto lens. It causes the background to compress, and therefore the things that are actually far away look closer.
