- Description: Johannesburg Mountain has long captivated me. Its dramatic spires rise above Cascade Pass in North Cascades Park like a gothic fortress. I had explored different compositional options on numerous hikes to Cascade Pass but it wasn't until I made the butt-kicking climb up Sahale Arm that I found a vantage point from which I could do them justice and capture them in all their glory.
- Gear: Canon 5D, Canon 5D, L Series 70-200mm
