Interesting Photo of the Day: Mount Rainier Sunrise

If you’ve ever had the chance to visit Mount Rainier National Park you know how stunning the views can be. With glacier-capped Mount Rainier towering in the distance and gorgeous lakes and rivers, forests, and sprawling meadows, the landscape provides a picturesque canvas. Here, photographer Steven Luu captures a serene sunrise from his campsite overlooking the lake:

“I woke up in the dark excitedly anticipating sunrise. As the sun rose above the horizon, then above a thick layer of clouds, we were treated to multiple displays of the mountain top being lit up, while the the valleys were still asleep.”

This image was shot with a Fuji X-T2, set at ISO 100, f/9, 1/8 of a second.
