   It always seems that there are either too many clouds or none at all when I have an opportunity to photograph Mount Baker. So sometimes I ignore it in favour of Mount Shuksan or one of the other nearby mountains available at Artist Point in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. This time, however, I like the small accents of light that showed up on the side of the peak, which gives this photo a bit more interest for me than others I made at the same time.

A shot from late in the summer. Sherman Peak sits on the side of Mt. Baker. This photo was taken from Artist Point on the same evening as this wider shot of Mt. Baker.

Artist Point – Mount Baker Wilderness

Made the trip up to Artist Point last night – just caught the last bit of nice light. A portion of my shots were unusable as a lot of mosquitoes decided that it would be a good idea to take up residence in my lens hood and I was in too much of a hurry to notice. Note to self: I will get there earlier next weekend and I will bring bug spray.

The decent sunset is courtesy smoke from forest fires in Washington State and BC.

2. Another version of the same panorama. This one is cropped to 1) include less of the “superfluous” scenery and 2) to preserve the potential idea that I hiked my ass off to get up there by cropping out the parking lot!
