Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Above the Clouds” by Amy Ames. Location: Mount Rainier National Park, Washington.

“On a recent Mount Rainier trip, we hiked up 4 miles to the mountain beside Mount Rainer to view the Milky Way,” explains Ames. “As the sun set and the temperature dropped, we watched the Milky Way slowly shift until it was just over the largest volcano in the United States. Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!”

Nikon Z 6. Exposure: 20 sec., f/2.8, ISO 3200.
