Mount Rainier // Rampart Ridge
A beautiful black and white long exposure of the summit of Mt. Rainier as seen from trails on the southwest side of the park, above Longmire.
Trails meander through deep forests full of ancient tress. After quite a bit of elevation gain, one breaks out into a clearing with magnificent, breath-taking, awe-inspiring views. On a lonely, enchanting evening I hiked solo to this vantage-point from where I watched the sun set on the while photographing literally the last few rays of light.
