Steve Biederman's photograph of Mt Rainier gets todays Photo Of The Day honors. The photo was sent in to the Atmospherics Assignment. Have a look at the full gallery here. He describes the situation, "Bad weather arrived as I got to Mt Rainier for a 3 day photo shoot of the mountain and wildflowers. I was on my down the mountain ready to hit the road back home when the clouds opened up and gave me this one late afternoon shot of the mountain with a wonderful cloud cap on the peak. After I took this, 3 minutes later the mountain was totally covered by clouds again..lucky me."
I've said it many times before, Luck is what happens when opportunity meets preparation.
