Tipsoo Lake Panorama

This is a panorama of Tipsoo Lake in Mount Rainier National Park. I lucked out with a gorgeous sky the first night I was there, and after that got either blank blue sky, or too much fog. It was a fun trip! I love relaxing on landscape photo adventures. :)

Photographed with a Fuji X-T1
