Golden Hour Goodness

January 5, 2021

Mt. Rainier and lenticular clouds at sunset. This mountain is high on the list of places I want to come back an explore this year as I only spent a day in the park in 2020.

For this long exposure I took (10) 2 second exposures and merged them together into Photoshop to create this "20" second long exposure.

Gorgeous shot buddy! I made it up there for one day last year as well, tried to photograph this location in the morning and got shut out with some of the thickest fog I have ever seen, ruined the entire morning, never saw the mountain the entire time I was there. Although a lot of people photograph this lake at sunrise I really like the light at sunset and there is probably a lot less people as well!

Thanks John! Such a bummer to hear about your visit. I hope next time you get some epic conditions at Rainier. It was pretty quiet on the end of the lake I shot at. Lots of people coming and going but few stayed to enjoy it.

Magnificent light, great reflection. I like the movement and "bending" of the clouds.
