The Brightside

So on father’s day I went for a drive looking for a shot. I decided to go back to Mt. Rainer National Park. I got started late and couldn’t get to where I wanted to be for a shot. I ended up in a scenic view location off the highway. The sun had all but set (This is a long exposure). Not a cloud in the sky just dark blue. The snow on the mountain at sunset glows when the moon is full.

I wasn’t real thrilled with my shots over this weekend. Especially when this was the first weekend of decent weather in 8 months. (well it feels like 8 months)

Anyway... I was encouraged to see if there was at least one shot worthy of upload. This was the best I could do.

As always... comments and feedback are appreciated

    It's VERY worthy!!!!! The snow does look like it's glowing, and I love the contrast of it against the dark sky. Love the fence in the foreground, too. Beautiful.
