Mt Rainier and the Moon

About: peterson scenic photography


Mt Rainier is every body's favorite subject in this area and it is no coincidence that it corps up in my pictures more often than it should.   When the full moon rises it will hover near to the mountain as if to  illuminate the slopes.  Yet you cannot get that picture ... it is too late and too dark and the mountain will never show up.  Instead you need to get the moon when it is almost full at twilight.  You get about 12 chances a year and most of those are clouded over.  At the Renton River days celebration yesterday i ran across Elke Peterson's photo.  She snapped it just perfect and framed it so that it  feels more like a canvass than a photograph.   Catch her at a show in the area.

Kudos Elke



Here is the best that i have gotten with that scene ...
