Corn lilies at Mount Rainier, Washington. Probably want to view this in the lightbox to bring out the darker details.

This is what a landscape photographer does on a rainy day instead of sleeping, when Rainier comps can't be scouted due to the pretty lady being fully socked in. Geeked out on these for a few hours one day with Alex Mody, Mike Bollino, and Jeremy Cram. Yeah, they're probably overdone and samey - but they're fun to shoot!

Due to the shorter actual focal lengths on crop sensors (24mm in this case) and the fact that the image is cropped down to about 13MP from the 16MP raw (taken physically farther away from the subject than the intended composition would require), only a single f/13 exposure was necessary to capture front-to-back tack sharpness. Wish I'd had a polarizer for this..
