lots of people photograph 9100-ft Mt Shuksan, in the northern Cascades - it's probably the most photographed peak in the state, if not the entire Northwest. with the reflections you can get (if you happen to be there on a calm day) from the lake, it's easy to see why. but this shot, taken during the brief few moments as the sun sinks behind the hills, is a little different... the alpenglow has turned the rock and snow from their normal gray and white to shades of pink and deep dusty rose. the phenomenon doesn't occur every evening, and lasts only a few minutes, and if you aren't ready for it, you'll miss it. i was ready for it...
