Photographer: Kalisa Beyer

Photo taken: Sept. 24, 2017, Skyline Divide Trail near Mount Baker

Photographer’s description: “Backpacking near Mount Baker, woke up to a beautiful sunrise. The rays of sunlight just starting to wake up the land. Used my phone, Google Pixel.”

Critique: “The light in this photo has a truly magical quality to it that you only get when you are up to see the sunrise. The soft golden sunlight nicely contrasts with the gray clouds creating a nice balance to the image. Cropping from the top will bring the focus on the great light even more.”
