Picture of the day - December 16, 2008
Close-up view of Mount Rainier
|Photo courtesy of
Several wonderful photographs of Mount Rainier have graced these
pages as "Pictures of the Day" over the years, but this one is
different from all the others. What you're looking at is a close-up
view of the famous peak, and here is photographer Kim-Scott-Olson
with a little background info on the image:
"This is a shot I couldn't resist while we were hiking up at Mount
Rainier. I was busy taking shots of the summer flowers, trying to
get sweeping landscape images when I looked up and noticed my
daughter on her father's shoulders. The glacier that was directly
front of our little hiking crew, kind of jumped out at us. It was
complete surprise. Powerful, majestic and beautiful. It made
feel rather insignificant. It was hard to keep walking so we
stopped and stared a bit." --Kim Scott-Olson

This is an outstanding image. I have never seen a photo that showed
Mt. Rainier at such close range. I love it!

Stared just a bit is what I would have done also. Very very nice

Beautiful! Everyone, even the viewer of the photograph, is entranced
by the beauty of the mountain and the people watching.
