my son (dangerkilo) from this site to me (Daniel) was with me..
we arrive and there were around 15 photographers there, waiting for sunrise..
it was in the mid 40's.. a bit cool with a breeze.. totally fogged in as shown here.. first hour or so.. the photogs left to be only 3 of us remaining. 3 hrs after we arrived the fog/clouds started to part and soon to be.. clear, sunny and beautiful. Patience was well worth it.. plus some of the shots with the clouds are impressive as well.. so many pics, so little time for PP.

Just beautiful. The B&W photo has much bigger impact than the color version. Probably, it would have been a killer shot if you had managed during golden hours. Too bad the fog spoiled it. Nevertheless, you have got a wonderful keeper.
yes.. we arrived for sunrise.. but no luck this day.
going back in Sept.. will give it another try..as this area will close once the snow falls as they do not clear the roads due to cost and distance.
Great shot. I was out at the Ref Lake this time last year and lucked out to get one morning with the mountain. It was clouded over the rest of my trip too. You've motivated me to try my hand at BW conversion.
thanks Chris B and Tony AD
want to go back in SEPT but just found out.. Rainier is one of the few National parks that do not allow dogs and we are big hikers/snow shoe folk..but no dogs allowed. Will have to rethink going back now since it is dog, unfriendly
