Mount Rainier National Park, Washington, USA

 
 

Rainier in Clouds

A massive cloud suddenly covered the entire mountain while we were hiking down the valley. The clouds were moving very fast and from time to time the sun illuminated parts of the valley making its way through the breach in clouds.

I was anticipating this shot and was waiting for a quite some time for the mountain to clear up in the clouds. Luckily, everything came together in this composition, the highlighted valley, the trees on the foreground and the mount Rainer on the background.
