In the fall of 2018, I was only able to slip away with the camera once. I took a quick overnight trip to the Trout Lake area, and spent the night listening to the rain and hoping that the moisture would leave so there would be views available the next day.
When I headed away from camp in the predawn dark the rain had stopped, and the stars were shining brightly. As I set up at this location, I hoped the opposite, that there would be enough moisture in the sky to hold color as the sun rose. The light cooperated just enough to give a nice warm glow as the sun greeted the mountain.
As I took this image I was surprised to find I was one of about 10 photographers; most of them participating in guided workshops. Zack Schnepf of Photo Cascadia was near me, and he called this a “Postcard Morning;” I thought that fit the bill nicely.
