Dome Peak from White Rocks Lakes

Tucked deep into the wild heart of the traverse, White Rock Lakes is the best place on the traverse for a layover day.

Surreal shot!

Beautiful shot! The grass in the foreground adds a very surreal touch.

Interesting Juxtaposition

Interesting juxtaposition of near and far elements in the photo--has me questioning my interpretation of the image scale. What lens? Well done, none the less!

Freekin' Awesome!

This picture captures the heart of the cascades like no other picture I have seen. Great shot!

Also, Is that Sinister in the background and Dark peak on the right? Or am I just confused?

Re: Freekin' Awesome!

That is Sinister on the left mostly hidden by the Chikamin Glacier, but the big peak on the left is the Dome massif. On the right is the so-called "One-eyed Bull". Look at that more-or-less triangular snow between the "ears" right up against the skyline - looks sorta like a white-headed bull with his snout pointing down and only a left eye!

Re: Go Washington!

Agreed! How are 'dem Olympics? I keep looking at them commuting on I-5, still haven't touched.

I'll second all that -- the lighting, the foreground grass as a nice touch, the overall appearance like a painting.

Hope you'll share the photographer's tricks behind this one!

Actually, it's not at all outrageous - it just very beautifully portrays our fantastic Washington treasures. Few photos can do them justice - but this one comes as close as you can get! This is not at all surreal - it's as real as it gets! Congrats on the POTD (should be POTW), and I hope you have tons more where this came from! -Bob

Re: Outrageous!

Wow... what else can I say but thanks! The photo really boils down to good light and being surrounded by unsurpassed natural beauty. I wish I could say it was a result of photographic brilliance, but I took it with an old Canon Powershot A300 (3.2 mp, no optical zoom). Nothing has been doctored or altered in the photo.

Thanks again for everyone's comments!!

Looks like a painting! Very nice!

The peak looks very similar to La Meije

It looks like the kind of place where one would just sit down and be content for the rest of his/her life. Very good.
