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). 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).

At lower-left is the Alaskan Way Viaduct which will be demolished in favour of a tunnel under downtown Seattle.

(The viaduct closed on 11 January 2019; demolition of the viaduct is in progress in spring 2019.)


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 fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-8xr.
