[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Evergreen State is synonymous with Washington (state) and is so dubbed primarily for the presence of vast green forest-lands which, for the most part, keep their green needles year-round. Exception: The beautiful Western Larch/Tamarac do lose their needles after turning a wonderful shade of yellow in the fall.

There are many varieties of indigenous trees in Washington including: Fir (white & red) , many types of Pine, Western-Larch (Tamarac), Cedar varieties, Alder and Oak just to name a few.

The wild-flowers are stunning from spring until fall and the trees and general scenery in Washington State is simply outstanding as evidenced in this photo.

Mount Rainier in the background of this photo is the tallest mountain in the Pacific Northwest at 14,410 feet. This east-side view is opposite the view that you will witness from the Seattle-Tacoma area.

God's best,

Very nice landscape Tim. Did you use a Cokin graduate filter? I notice the darker blue sky at the top of your image.

Tim, Nice landscape on this shot. Colours are beautiful. IMO the shot is too symmetric. I think it would be nicer with the mountain off centre.
Greetings, Jan

Hi tim a lovely scene here colours are goregous , I think that instead of doing all that work to the top I would crop it about half way between the mountain top and the top of the picture.I just think it looks better like that.

A very plesant lanscape with the snowcapped peak. Things to note are that the subject should not be interfered with, like the FG trees going through the BG subjt, as it distracts from your impact. A bit off centre is often more striking than spot on dead centre. Thryand use a ripod an smaller F-stop to render the scene sharp fornt to back - note the yellow flowers. Lastly. include the bottom of the grasses, the crop line here makes it look a bit awkward. These are only some pointers in general. Also, there is a darker band across the blue sky at the top that hints at shooting through a window perhaps? Overall, as I said, this is a pleasing picture, but it lacks mood and impact IMO.

Thought I could find you here. Man, if only I could be here in real life. This is great view Tim. The thing is, I keep getting so good pictures, I'm repeating myself.

God's best Tim.

This photo is visually interesting with the different colors, textures, and angles. The trees seem to lean to the right while the grasses seem to lean to the left more. I love the clouds seeming to "steam" off the top of the mountain, and the view taken from the east is lovely.

Hi Tim

I assume it rains a lot there judging from the green green trees.
