This is a 3 image HDR (High Dynamic Range) composite with the exposures being one stop apart. I took a set of 5, but using the whole set resulted in too much ghosting. The peak on the far left horizon is Mt Baker.
Visiting a friend just outside of the small town of Acme in NW Washington. A wonderful view from the kitchen table. (Note that this is a normal lens and basically uncropped.) Mt Baker is the bump just behind the ridge on the left side of the image. I tried various HDR images, but the clouds were moving so fast that they didn’t really turn out well.
While I enjoy summers in the Pacific Northwest, I’ll have to admit that I don’t see as many sunrises during May, June and July. This was September 2nd and I was up at 6 AM. But worth the early rise to enjoy this colorful display. This is taken from Marrowstone Island, the water is Admiralty Inlet, and if it wasn’t cloudy, you would see some of the Cascade Mountains in the distance.
