Mt Shuksan by Moonlight by La-Vita-a-Bella Mt Shuksan by Moonlight by La-Vita-a-Bella
I made a trip to photograph Mt. Shuksan this weekend.
It was cold but oh-so-beautiful!
This shot was taken after sunset with the moon shining on the mountain and reflecting in Picture Lake.

Beautiful! I went to Mt Rainier a couple years ago, and loved it! Didn't get a shot like this though!

This is Mt. Shuksan, not Mt. Rainier. But I'm glad you like it. :)

Thanks. I stayed an hour and 45 min after sunset doing some star trail shots as well, but since the moon was out, it was obviously too bright. But it was still cool having the place all to myself. :)

I thought it would be really bad but it wasn't. I've been to much worse (can you say Delicate Arch?).

delicate arch is usually crowded with tourists AND photographers so its doubly busy... the shot i took of it in the snow though, i was the only one up there. I didn't know that was possible

I posted a shot of all the photographers at Delicate Arch [link] Probably the most photographers I've run into all at once. Lucky you to have it all to yourself. :D

Bellingham is where I stayed for two nights. I love going to Whatcom Falls. :nod: I wish Bellingham wasn't so far away from where I live. :(

I was just at the Falls a few weeks ago taking pics - we have our gorgeous parks like Whatcom Falls, Cornwall, Boulevard too! I keep telling my family I live in (and moved to) the most gorgeous versatile place ever! :XD:
Sorry you live so far from here but at least you were able to enjoy it for a few days! :) (and pics for memories)

I was going to stop at the falls on this trip, but it was just too darn sunny for getting good waterfall shots. I spent most of my time up on the mountain. I did make a trip up to Vancouver but regretted it because I got picked for a random search coming back, which made me late for photographing this scene at sunset. :(

ArtSoul777 Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2010
sorry to hear about the random search and how it cost you a great sunset shot. I've had those moments too as a photographer/poet!
maybe you'll find your way up here again in the near future! :XD:
thanks for the chatting :)
