Mt. Rainier Sunset by Peter Cheung

June 2021 - Mt. Rainier Sunset

About the Image(s)

The picture was taken on the Upper Tipsoo Lake in Mt. Rainier National Park last weekend when Chinook Pass has just opened for the season. The road to the Tipsoo Lake is snow free and safe to drive. However, the lake is still mostly frozen and still lot of snow on the mountain. We were so lucky that there was beautiful cloud, and Mount Rainier was clear during sunset at that time. The camera settings I used are Nikon D850, Nikon 18-35mm, ISO-200, 1/250sec, f/9.

That reflection is incredible! Just a stunning image, as always, Peter! They really don't get much better than this! I suspect it was pretty cold and interesting I really like the footprints in the snow, it shows me that this is reality.   Posted: 06/10/2021 12:58:51

Beautiful image. Love the strong reflection in the pond in the center. It draws the eye into the scene and over the hill.   Posted: 06/10/2021 13:37:51

Kudos! Nothing really to add. I like particularly that the trees touch the clouds.   Posted: 06/15/2021 07:47:54
