We were up around the Mt. Adams Area last summer and decided to take this photo of Mt. Adams from Muddy Meadows about a 1/2 mile from Keenes Horse Camp.
Following note is from Wikipedia.
Mount Adams is a potentially active stratovolcano in the Cascade Range and the second-highest mountain in the state of Washington, USA. Adams is a member of the Cascade Volcanic Arc, one of the arc's largest volcanoes and is located in a remote wilderness approximately 31 miles (50 km) east of Mount St. Helens. The Mount Adams Wilderness comprises the upper and western part of the volcano's cone. The eastern side of the mountain is part of the Yakima Nation.
Adams' asymmetrical and broad body rises a mile and a half (2.4 km) above the Cascade crest and its nearly flat summit looks as if the volcano was decapitated (which it in fact has not been). Air travelers flying the busy routes above the area sometimes confuse Mt. Adams with nearby Mt. Rainier, which has a similar flat-topped shape.
The Pacific Crest Trail traverses the west flank of the mountain.

Beautiful shot, a pleasure to sit and look at.
Bit of a change from the Spokane River.

Good contrast between bright zone and shades, nice soft sunlight shinning on weeds saparate the field in many layers, distinct image, well done.

A good vegetal framing with the two trees on the sides. Nice contrats and colors. Composition well balanced with a nice symetry in the image.

This image stand out in your gallery. There are some technical flaws but in general is very good. I think you had the right idea and found the perfect angle to capture the beauty of this place. The layering gets my attention: shadows, sunny pasture, trees, mountain and blue sky. Nicely balanced and visually appealling composition. Thanks Jason :-)

Beautiful Northwestern landscape of this rich lush green meadow sitting peacefully below the active volcanic mountain that looks harmless with its snow dusted peak.
I love how the line of evergreens move halfway up the mountains.

nice picturesque landscape view with the snowy top of the Mt. Adams on the background in August, to be so impressive for me.I like the physical frame that created from the side trees, as the line of the trees on the roots of the Mt.Well done.
