    Beautiful photo. I love how the sun breaks just past the barn.

Perfect compostion. And the yellow tint from the sun really brings this photo out. I have been to Mt. Rainer, but never encountered the chance to photograph there without it raining and being overcast. This photo is beautiful. Keep up the good work.

Jim, I grew up outside of Seattle (Belfair on Hood Canal) and love this picture. I left almost thirty years ago and live in Atlanta. I would like to know where this was taken (it looks very familiar) and how I can purchase an image good enough to print 13 by 19 on my epson 1280. After today's events Mt. Rainer is a very comfortable site.
I have a cable modem so file size is not an issue.

Hi Michael,

This was shot on the road from Puyallup toward Northwest Trek. I can't remember the actual street name but if you are interested I will be happy to look it up as soon as the wife gets home with the car (and, thus, the maps).

Thanks very much for your comments.

Jim, In early May 1994, I traveled to the Seattle - Tacoma area for a job interview at Weyerhauser. From the second or third story of their building was a beautiful view of Mt. Ranier quite similar to your photo. Upon leaving Sea-Tac airport the next morning, we were able to see the peak above the clouds.

It is a very impressive sight, isn't it? My breath is continually taken away driving along the backroads and freeways and catching a glimpse of the mountain.

You were probably on Meridian. It goes from Puyallup out past Graham and eventually ends up at Rainer. We lived in Spanaway (near Puyallup & Tacoma) for about 14 years. I never tired of the view. Those who live in the Seattle/Tacoma area know that this mountain "Moves" around quite a bit. Sometimes it seems north, sometimes east... a trick of the senses, from the directional changes in the highways.
Nothing like taking kids to school, sitting in the parking lot, coffee & paper in hand... just to watch the sunrise over the mountain.. breathtaking.

Yes, you are correct. I should have done this as a Where in the World contest - Your specific answer would have done very well ;)

I have to respond to this beautiful picture because I am so moved by that part of the country. My sister lives and works in the Seattle area. I love to visit. I wrote a poem about it. When I post it on the Poetry site, I will let you know. Thanks for this site. I just found it and it is such a creative release for me. I love it. My photos on here are "I look Up To You" (people),"Squirrel's Eye View" and "Beginning or End".
