Sunset over Kangaroo Ridge and meadows of Washington pass, North Cascades Washington.

Another image from last week's North Cascades trip. This is currently one of my favorites. On my first day of the trip I met up with Michael Russell and spent the evening photographing with him in these meadows. I wasn't too happy with my results and on my last evening of the trip a few high clouds drifted in along with a wisp of smoke from nearby wildfires. This produced the light I was looking for and helped me come away with some of the best images of the trip.

This image was made from a single exposure utilizing a two stop GND filter and was processed using levels curves and some selective burning and dodging.
