Fotoeins Friday: Mount Rainier, sleeping giant

At the northwest corner of Pike Place Market in Seattle, Victor Steinbrueck Park provides a beautiful view which includes Washington State Ferries shuttling between Seattle and locations around central Puget Sound. Mount Rainier looms over CenturyLink Field (left) and Safeco Field (right), as the Alaskan Way Viaduct emerges from the distance. At a height of 4392 metres (14410 feet), Mount Rainier is a dormant stratovolcano in the Cascade Mountain Range, and is the highest mountain in Washington State (and, naturally, very prominent on license plates). The line-of-sight distance from camera position to the summit of Mount Rainier is 95 kilometres (59 miles).

I made the photo on 11 May 2016 with the Canon EOS6D, 24-105 L zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/1250s, f/5, ISO100, and 90mm focal-length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at as

      Gracias, Eva! 😅 What I did to the image (as I do in standard fashion to every image) was cropping, followed by “dodging and burning.” I’m of the camp that goes with “trying to get in-camera as much right as possible.” I’m far more interested in what I’m seeing than what can be done in post (-production). Because frankly, I am lazy. 😁
