I am currently on a quest to get a specific sunrise photo of Mt. Rainier. It requires certain weather conditions, which we may or may not have. Because of this quest, I have been lugging my camera and telephoto lens back and forth to work every day. I'm now off for 5 days, and instead of sleeping in and enjoying the luxury of getting up after 8, I got up at 7:15 and looked out my slider to see what the mountain had to offer today, and it looked promising. So I headed out to my fave photo spot in the neighborhood, cranked the heat in the car and waited to see what the sky would paint for me today.
Massive lenticular cloud sitting on top of Rainier like a big hat.
The cloud started to slowly move off the summit.
The photo I am trying to capture is of the shadow of the mountains on the clouds as the sun finally hits them. While the cloud on Rainier did not produce the shadow I was hoping for, I did get the effect from the lower mountains.
