Mary and I just got back from a Jack Graham and Bill Fortney workshop in Mount Rainier National Park. Our longest day was a 50 mile drive from the Paradise Inn to the Sunrise Visitors Center for a (ironically) sunset shoot. Here is what we saw.
We made a few stops along the way, but the climax was trying to get a good photo at Sunrise Point as Mount Rainier was shrouded in clouds all day. We definitely made lemonade on this day.
We had the beginnings of the storm that was to come that night, but the mountain never revealed herself. Remember for mid-day shooting and harsh light, think monotone (black and white). Mary and I both carry infrared cameras that are perfect for these types of conditions.
As the sun finally started setting, we started to focus away from Mount Rainier and out toward the east with a rising moon.
Next week, more from Mount Rainier.
