  • 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 for about 45 minutes until the sun was low enough to cause the cloud that envelops the mountain, to glow.
  • Gear: Pentax 645/Pentax 45mm/Fujichrome Velvia/Manfrotto tripod/Standard Manfrotto head

    Wow, this is just spectacular, and reading the backstory makes it even more so. I hope I see this in a double spread!
