Baker Wonderland by Raymaker Baker Wonderland by Raymaker
After receiving over 4 feet of snow in a week, Mt. Baker reveals herself and all her glory. A welcome sight after arriving at Artist Point the evening before, completely covered in clouds, the landscape was an absolutely blank white canvass, without definition, and incredibly disorienting. There is nothing more rewarding that waking up to beautiful skies after a disappointing sunset.

Mt. Baker from Artist Point - Mt. Baker National Forest, Washington

a.) this photo is ridiculously awesome
b.) I've been staring at this photo for too long during this critique and the gross green da background is messing with my eyes.. with that said I'm pretty sure the colors are spot on.
c.) I dont know what the rest of the foreground was like but my eyes want to see more of that fluffy beautiful fresh snow.
d.) i really like how the trees frame the shot, and how the trees at the edges break the horizon.
e.) i might nudge the crop so that there is less space between the tree on the right and the edge of the photo and a little more space between the tree on the left of the photo. (i now theres another half a tree there, which is why you cropped it like this, but if you consider framing that tree will be cut out.
f.) this is epic and definitely worth an overnight winter camping session.
g.) why wasnt I invited
h.) when you left did you run all over the fresh snow in the foreground and ruin it? cause I would have, but maybe thats just me.
i.) were you and ian talking about your feelings while you stood next to each other shooting this scene?
j.) you should go here in the summer and take the exact same shot. Thats an order.
k.) ok this shot is amazing and I'd say more but the ugly green background on this site is killing my eyes and sensibility so I cannot be trusted to critique further.
l.) the end.

There are so many wonderful things about this shot, I don't quite know where to begin!

First and foremost though I have to say that as a native of the Pacific Northwest myself, this really captures one of the beauties found in this part of the world. I can practically taste the cold, crisp air; the colors are so bright and brilliant. The white reflecting the blue of the sky so that everything seems to be slightly 'aglow'.

The framing is wonderful. Not only do the trees set up a wonderful outer frame, but I love how thanks to the natural light of the sun things go from dark to light as one moves from the left of the photo to the right. So that the focal point truly is the beautiful, pristine top of Mt. Baker itself.

I can't tell where the clouds start and the snow ends...and I love it that way. This almost seems taken out of another world. No sign of human life anywhere. A true capture of nature in its purest form.

Wonderful, wonderful shot. Great job to the artist!
