Photographer's Note

This is my second shot of Mt. Rainier in Mt. Rainier National Park. This was taken on a hike in the morning near the Sunrise Visitor’s center. Again it’s 14,410ft (4392m) tall. On a day this clear you can see it from Seattle. It is 90 miles (145 km) south east of the city. That fact makes this one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the Cascade Range since it's so much closer to a large population.

What really impressed me about Mt. Rainier was how huge it was and how much it dominates the sky. It's vastly higher than the rest of the nearby mountains.

I did under-sharpen the foreground so I posted a WS with more detail.
