Ellensburg Downtown: The Davidson Building with Snow at Night

If you’ve ever been to downtown Ellensburg, Washington, you have undoubtedly seen the Davidson Building. The Davidson building is in the heart of Ellensburg’s Historic district, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and was originally built in 1889. Due to its unique character and historic nature, the building is often photographed by visitors and residents alike. I’ve been waiting for the right conditions to get a more unique shot than many of the photos I have seen. This weekend we had a fresh snow. The streetlights were reflecting off of the low cloud cover, creating dramatic lighting conditions, and I knew that this was my chance to get a great shot. The following photo is one of my favorites. This basically straight out of the camera- no Photoshop enhancement, no HDR, no digital trickery.

    How come no new photos of Cedar? Too busy taking care of him?

    Things have been crazy lately. Cedar care, work stuff, home stuff, all competing for my time. Cedar is doing great, just haven’t gotten around to posting more pics. I am trying to maintain some balance with the blog too and not make it just a blog of Cedar 🙂
