Photographer: Craig Goodwin Sr. Photo taken: Nov. 7, 2018 at Tipsoo Lake at the summit of Chinook Pass Photographer’s description: “With Chinook Pass closing soon, I headed up to Tipsoo Lake in hopes of catching sunrise reflections of Mount Rainier on the nearly frozen snow-covered lake. Despite lingering clouds, the mountain cleared. Mission accomplished: Canon D5 Mark III, Sigma 35mm lens, f7.1, ISO640, 1/100 shutter-speed.” Critique: “What really stands out to me in this photo is the nice contrast of the sunrise on the mountain and the darker cold feeling lighting that surrounds the center of the photo. The tree line and lake surrounding the mountain and its reflection act as a funnel that focuses in on the subject.” Below is a gallery of previous Reader’s Lens picks.
