Inauspicious Start

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 10 October 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

Alex, Daniel, and I decided to try seeing a sunrise from Sunrise on Mt. Rainier. So, we headed for the White River Campground with plans to be up for the sunrise the next morning. After setting up camp, we drove part way to the Sunrise Visitor Center to see how things looked. As you can see, it was very cloudy when we stopped at the East Fork White River.

We were wondering what the morning might bring.

That is a beautiful part of the world where sunshine isn't a given, but this moody vibe is still wonderful for your winding entry into the visual of the mountain under cloud.

An interesting picture of how the weather can affect our plans to view in the mountains. Never a dull moment in the mountains.

Thankfully, other options were open to allow you to get good shots! I love the depth this PoV gives your composition! The meandering river and bed lead my eyes right into the view. Your unfortunate letdown reminds me of a saying someone once said when we were going to see Mount Rainier..."If you can't see Mount Rainier, it's raining. If you can see Mount Rainier, it's about to rain."

It is still a gorgeous view with the low clouds hanging onto the mountain. This is a gorgeous view of the river nicely framed by the trees on each side.
