From I-5 in Bellingham, WA drive about 54 miles east on the Mt Baker Hwy (WA 542) and stop at scenic Picture Lake, An accessible trail surrounds the lake and features this classic vista of Mt Shuksan reflected in the lake.
This image was shot just before 6 am on an early June morning with a one second exposure, ISO 100 at f/22.
This is a view of early summer's first light on Mt Shuksan as reflected in Picture Lake. Not only is this an incredible picturesque location but the accessible trail makes it easy for nearly everyone to experience its beauty. Mt Shuksan illustrates well why the North Cascades Mountain Range has been called America's Alps.
