Single-Image Sunday: Sunrise over Puget Sound   14 comments

This is an image I captured recently at sunrise from Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, Washington.  The last two Friday Foto Talk posts focused on using reflection and this picture is a further example.  I think it shows that reflection of light and color can really add interest to an image whether you use water or something else.  In this case, a low layer of clouds and fog covers the cool waters of Puget Sound and my high viewpoint was the key.  The rising sun reflected from the cloud-tops in a very pleasing and somewhat unusual manner.  Hurricane Ridge is a great place to wake up.  You can see the northern Washington Cascades & Puget Sound (as in this image), the Olympic Mountains, the Pacific Coast, and up over Canada’s Vancouver Island.  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

 

Light from the rising sun fills valleys of the North Cascades and reflects off low clouds covering the waters of Puget Sound in Washington.

  5. Thanks everyone for your nice words, especially since I messed up and initially uploaded a shot with an incorrect crop. I fixed it. Thanks for your patience with my mistakes!

  7. Stunning.

  8. These layers of mountains…. Lylekrahn said it!!!

  9. I have taken some photos at Hurricane Ridge as well, in broad daylight. They didn’t look anything like your photo. This is startlingly beautiful.

  10. The layers of mountains folding into the layers of clouds really makes this exceptional.

Please don't be shy; your words are what makes my day!
