16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunset over Mount Baker

This photo is showing Mount Baker, an active volcano in Washington State. My favorite view of Mount Baker is that seen from the summit of Mount Pilchuck. I had climbed Mount Pilchuck early in the day in order to set up photo compositions so when sunset came I would be prepared. Although I had been to the summit of Mount Pilchuck many times before, this evening was the most phenomenal sunset I had seen in a long time, regardless of my location.
