Rainier Reflection at Sunrise, Mt. Rainier National Park. It had been completely clear for a couple days so the clouds and color this morning were a really nice parting gift on the last day of my trip. The other great surprise of the trip was running into my friends Chip and Mandy Phillips and getting to catch up with them. Too bad for Chip that he decided to sleep in the next morning and missed this light show.

Canon 5D MKIII, 24-105 mm lens, polarizer. Three exposures blended for dynamic range using luminosity layer mask techniques in Photoshop.
