Spring on Mt. Rainier

Posted by Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 27 August 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

Yes, it's August but the wildflowers think it's spring at Paradise on Mount Rainier. Paradise sits at the 5,400 foot (1,646 meters) level. In the background is the Tatoosh Range with Mount Adams further back.

Mount Rainier National Park, Washington, USA.

The progression through the image is great, from flowers, mountains, right on to the center. The Tatoosh range looks like a watercolor...? Lovely image Steve.

I like the wildflower patch as a foreground for the mountain range. A solid shot which is very attractive. Added to my VFXY collection today.

beautiful colors; is the bg photoshopped? looks almost like a watercolor\...excellent!

@paulski: I think the effect you see is a depth of field phenomenon. The point of focus, the flowers, is fairly close leaving the background out of focus.

great composition and depth fo field - the flowers in the foregorund are so full of life and colour... mountains in teh cbakgroudn look almost painted on as an afterthought...
