Subalpine Lupines (Lupinus arcticus ssp. subalpinus) on Kulshan Ridge with Mount Shuksan in the background – Mount Baker Wilderness, Washington State, USA. Still the only time I've seen lupines flowering up here. Try to ignore the obvious GND fiasco - it was my first time using them (7 years ago). :)

Mount Redoubt

I've shared a number of images of Mount Redoubt (in Washington) photographed from Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park (Chilliwack, British Columbia) before. Most have been of Redoubt itself, or Redoubt and the surrounding mountains only. I thought I'd share one today that also shows Chilliwack Lake. Most of my others with the lake are rather wide angle and you can barely see Mount Redoubt in the background. This is an older photo from 2011 and I can say I sure don't miss those old dusty 30D files all that much!

Mount Shuksan

I've shared this one a few times but I can't resist doing it again. This is the iconic/famous reflection of Mount Shuksan at Picture Lake in Washington State's Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. A good photo at this location is pretty easy to get, but I've not seen the sky like this since this particular evening. I have several locations that I probably won't photograph again, this being one of them - unless the conditions are unique - like on this night.

Oh and I've seen people talk (brag) about how hard the hike is to this point. See that little strip of lighter color just above the water surface on the far left side? That is the road. I think the arduous hike to this location is about 60 feet at the most. :)

The fourth photo from my top 10 photos of 2016 blog post is this shot from Mt. Erie Park of some North Cascades peaks in Ancortes, Washington. I didn't plan the moonrise, but sometimes being in the right place at the right time comes by accident.
