  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: I was driving through Mt. Rainier National Park, when I first noticed this scene begin to unfold. I quickly pulled over, grabbed my gear and began running toward the mountain, through the deep fresh new snow. With no idea where I was going, it seemed as if time was standing still. I must have ran about half a mile or so, when I arrived at this clearing. Of course, I then ended up waiting over an hour, until the sun was low enough to cause the cloud that enveloped the mountain, to glow. I pulled my Cokin graduated ND filter down far enough to enhance the top half of the image, while attempting to retain the natural color of the foreground snow.
  • Gear: Pentax 645, Pentax 45mm f/2.8, Fujichrome Velvia, Manfrotto tripod, Standard Manfrotto head, Cokin Graduated ND Filter

    Thanks Brian! I liked this point of view from the water. Will have a couple more different lighthouses from the water in a couple of days. I'm excitedly (as I'm sure many here on O.P. are) now...
