This picture was shot while climbing Eldorado Peak this last summer in the North Cascades. During the time of this trip, wildfire smoke was beginning to fill the sky in Washington State. The addition of smoke with the rising sun created a spectacular alpenglow on Glacier Peak. Glacier Peak is one the 5 volcanoes in Washington and is 10,541' tall. Our camp on Eldorado Peak was about 30 miles due North as the bird flies from Glacier Peak that morning, so I was glad to have an all in one lens with some telephoto capabilities. Completely zoomed in at a 140mm focal length I was able to capture the stunning sunrise on the North Guardian and Dusty Glaciers, all while the smoky haze softened the surrounding landscape. It was well worth hanging out at camp a bit longer and starting our climb late for one of the best sunrises I've ever seen in North Cascades. It's days like this, that I'm very appreciative that I get to spent so much time in the mountains!
