Photographer: Bob Ross, Gig Harbor Photo taken: Oct. 14 Photographer’s description: “Taken from the deck of our home in Gig Harbor. Mount Rainier at sunrise with beautiful color and lenticular clouds, using 300mm lens.” Critique: “This is a beautiful golden, orange fall photo of Mount Rainier. The zoom really cleans up the foreground and background and lets the clouds, color and mountain star in the photo. Very well done.” Below is a gallery of past Reader’s Lens picks.
