Mount Rainier at Night from Sunrise
Taken July 6, 2012 from the Sunrise Parking lot. A 60 second shutter speed was used to capture this photo, I used a bench as a tripod as well as using my camera case to angle it. This was taken a few minutes after getting out of the car from Colorado. I was pleased to see glaciers shining from the moon light. While I had a great trip, it felt good to be back home where the Cascades are wet but not on fire. On the left is Little Tahoma, in the middle is the Emmons Glacier (on Rainier) and a lodge can be seen on the right. The next three days after this photo was taken we climbed Rainier in good fashion and a very successful trip. What a great way to end the Grand Tour Part 2!
