What a breathtaking view! This was taken on the Skyline Divide of Mount Baker in Washington. The photographer’s tent can be viewed in the middle of the image, providing a nice pop of color and contrast from the surroundings. The morning sunlight is making its way onto the mountaintop, warming the land below. I love how a broad landscape image manages to also show minute details of trail surface and moss. In the distance, clouds swirl around the peak as if they are drawn in by some mysterious force. To the right, sunbeams shoot down onto the vast stands of pines blanketing the terrain. It certainly looks like a glorious morning.
