It’s hard to pick a favorite image, but I think that this is up there for me. This is the image that I’ve been longing for since I started photography about two years ago. Mt. Rainier and wildflowers go hand in hand and to be able to finally photograph them, together is something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. This was taken in early morning light on Sun Top lookout at 7,500 ft near HWY 410. Thanks a ton to my girlfriend’s dad for finding this really cool location. This image wouldn’t have been possible without his insight. This is what I hope to be the first of several wildflower images from the mountains this summer!

This past weekend, my wife and I decided to spend one night in Mount Rainier NP. The purpose of this trip was mostly to scout a new area, and see what was there. If anything.

On our way back to the car, I noticed that a pretty awesome lenticular clouds was forming. I stopped and took a few shots but I wasn’t pleased with the comp. So I decided to just appreciate the moment and let go of trying to make photographs.

Once at the parking lot, I remembered a spot I’d found the year before. This isn’t a secret spot or anything. It’s the Emons Glacier vista, which is one of my favorite view points in the park. And I wanted to show it to my wife. So we walked over there and that’s when the sky simply went off. No warning or anything. Went nuclear in a jiffy.

Anyway, thanks for looking, check the links above and follow me on Facebook! 😀

New on 500px : A Glimpse of Paradise by alexnoriega by alexnoriega

Looks best on black.

An image from a couple years ago up at Paradise at Mount Rainier, looking back toward the Tatoosh Range. I posted something from this evening back then, but I somehow missed this exposure where the moon was catching a glimpse of Paradise through a MOONHOLE (credit jSwan) in the fast-moving clouds.

I’ve never posted more than a single image in a day, but I’ve had these finished files lying around for a long time – and it’s a SPECIAL OCCASION! The occasion is that I have been really bad about posting stuff for the last few months. I’m very sorry for any inconVEEFience caused by this deluge of non-groundbreaking imagery!

It’s been a long time since I posted an image of a mountain (that will be changing soon) so hopefully this will tide some folks over until the summer melt picks up speed this was taken this past October as the winter Milky Way rose over Mt. Rainier seen from Tipsoo Lake on Chinook Pass. I posted a shot from here last year, but it was pretty noisy, I’ve treated this one with a few tricks I’ve picked up over the past year to produce a cleaner image. Any who hope you enjoy it!

I overslept and almost missed the sunrise that morning. Thankfully I was able to wake up just in time to witness some amazing display of light and clouds on top of Mount Rainier.
