Sunrise or Sunset?

What a beautiful photo! Its always great to be high in the mountain at that special time in day. I just wonder was that at sunrise or sunset? At this moment I'm lazy to check is St.Helens south of Rainier. If it is then ofcourse its sunrise :-)

Re: Sunrise or Sunset?

Yes it was Sunrise, we reached the peak around 5:00 am. This photo was during the decent, probably 750' below the summit.

I like it!

This picture has a real feeling! It's the best time of the day, it's natural. People are not posing, even the horison is tilted a bit, but that doesn't matter. This one has a great feeling!

Re: I like it!

I agree--I feel like I could put my boots on, place my feet against the screen, and start walking up the path. I love pictures like this that make me feel like I'm climbing there right now.

Wonderful colors...

....in the morning light. Isn't that Mt. Adams on the horizon? Maybe the shot is before May 1980.
