Fantastic shot Josh,
Almost looks like a 3D effect. The shadows and lighting give wonderful texture to the image. Love the composition, and your exposure is right on the money. Sounds like your having a great time hiking up these majestic mountains. TFS.
Sounds like you may have had some elevation sickness. It can be serious Mount Rainier and Mount Hod are not mountains to be taken lightly. The weather can change quickly and trap hikers in any season.
It is a nice image with already a lot of snow. The clouds are interesting.

This is certainly the most beautiful picture you have posted on TrekNature. I just love it! The mountain is superb, and the colours are so delicate. The clouds and their shapes add to the value of the picture. It's fascinating and exciting and awakes deep emotions...
Imaged well this beauty, with lots of details in it! I've been here once as high as you can go by car, but we couldn't see anything from up there - clouds too :) But anyway it was wonderful and to see it in full snow cover is superb too. Wasn't there some nice waterfall on the way up or am I mistaken, it was like 12 years ago or so :) But I'm sure it was very cold up there for summer and hours to reach the watchtower from where you could watch the cloud from inside :). I like your detailed notes too, it was nice to read all over! TFS!
Hello Joshua! Excellent mountain. Amazing winter scenery. Nice lightness and colours. Good sharpness. Original work. Well done!
A heavenly image Josh...It has a lot of symbolism...My son can see it from their kitchen window at home in Renton...beautiful image...oh yes...my son or one of the 6 boys, my son Chris took the 10 day walk around this mountain...It was QUITE the journey with 3 other physical therapists in his group...wow! I love it..this is still considered an active volcano..and the biggest problem according to USGS is mud slides...Fine image showing exactly how fast this snow would turn to mud and water...wow!
A few years ago we did a hunt to see the summit of Mt. Rainier but never got a very clear view of it untill we were flying back home. Your view on the magnificent mountain is great. The clouds hugging the summit are great. I like the details you managed to capture in the snow and ice a lot. I did check the histogram of your photo and noticed a gap of no information in the highlights, indicating the under exposure. Its best to move the highlight slider toward the information and stop just before you get to the bulk of it.
Very impressive shot, Josh!
The cloud formations are amazing.
