Winner: "Sunrise On Glacier" By Bryce Hill


"I got this shot while guiding on Eldorado Peak in Washington this summer," explains Hill. " I woke up for an early-morning summit attempt and sat around camp awhile watching the sunrise on Glacier Peak (Dakobed), which is the most isolated of the volcanoes in Washington. Due to wildfires across the PNW, smoke was just starting to work its way into the North Cascades. The smoky haze provided a unique alpenglow that morning across the mountains and sky making an already beautiful area even more spectacular."
