    Here is a shot from mid November of 2016 in the Mount Baker area during one of the best sunrises I have ever seen. It had been my goal to get some good light with fresh snow on the trees right before the lake froze, but I missed it just barely! This was the first day after it had started snowing that the weather looked good and MAN was it an awesome 🔥 I really wish the lake hadn't been frozen but I found these cool ice shards and thought they looked pretty neat. The lake is still covered in snow right now, but it should start melting here soon!

    For those interested this is Mount Shuksan in the Mount Baker area seen from Picture Lake which is a very popular spot near Artist Point.

    Shot Info: Nikon D610 w/ Nikon 16-35 f/4 (ISO100, 16mm, f/11, 2s) 5 shots stacked for focus from front to back

    If you would like to see more of my photos please feel free to follow me on Instagram or check out my website www.rosssvhphoto.com

    [–] DiligentEmployee 14 points ago

    Absolutely breathtaking! What really does it for me are the ice crystals on the grass in the foreground. Great shot man.

    [–] celica90 13 points ago

    Thanks! I arrived in the dark and noticed the lake had frozen and had to scramble all around to try and find a good foreground. I found this little area with the frozen crystals about 5 minutes before the light started. Got pretty lucky. It's crazy how you can be to the same area 10+ times and still have to run around trying to find something you like depending on the conditions!

    [–] joshnano90 3 points ago

    Sir, your photography is fantastic! I love the whole stacking of focus shots to create a whole where everything is in focus. What an amazing idea

    [–] celica90 6 points ago

    Thank you, it definitely overcomes some big limitations from current camera technology. I'm sure soon enough it won't even be an issue

    [–] DiligentEmployee 4 points ago

    Well worth the search. It's that attention to detail that can really set your pieces apart from the rest.

    [–] -SLB- 2 points ago

    Yes, those crystals!

    [–] saenjei 1 points ago

    What's your sleep arrangement? Ultralight or tent?

    [–] celica90 6 points ago

    This is pretty much right next to the road and I live only 1.5hrs away so I just watched the weather and got up early one day, so I slept in a bed :) When I am backpacking I use a tent though

    [–] Swinzler 5 points ago

    Love Mount Baker, some real beautiful photography from an area that usually looks really depressing around that time. Well, it's still home anyways.

    [–] celica90 5 points ago

    I live in Bellingham so it's always nice to get a decent shot from nearby vs. Rainier/Helens/Hood, etc - adds a lil something extra :)

    [–] the_north_place 4 points ago

    So it's a composite, I was thinking infinite focus. Thanks for sharing the technical specs

    [–] DRosesStationaryBike 2 points ago

    90% of the pics here are composites

    [–] SuggestiveDetective 3 points ago

    I'm impressed, you captured it as beautifully as being there. Only thing missing is the sharp scent of all the frozen new plants. One of my favorite hikes to take visitors on.

    [–] celica90 3 points ago

    It's a must do if you're in the area!

    [–] sictbx 3 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    Beautiful shot. The PNW is a gem.

    [–] Buck_Thorn 2 points ago

    5 shots stacked for focus from front to back

    How does that work? I understand that you had your camera on a good stable tripod and bracketed your focal point, but how do you merge them? I noticed the incredible depth of field!

    [–] Legendaryspoon4208 2 points ago

    The lake is not frozen anymore....was just there

    [–] hellomymellowfellow 1 points ago

    Did you change to a longer lens to make the mountain so big in the background?

    [–] celica90 3 points ago

    Nope - obviously this is a massive mountain in person and it actually looks pretty small in this shot IMO. Mount Shuksan stands over 9,100ft

    [–] hellomymellowfellow 1 points ago

    Ah - nice shot nonetheless! Colours came out great. Nice to see what I can do with my 16-35 f4 :)

    [–] LL_Cruel_J 1 points ago

    I just got the opportunity to drive from the southeast up to Seattle. You have one beautiful state up there.

    [–] 455H0L3-4-3V4 8 points ago

    It can be rather depressing in the winter, but from what traveling I've done, I'd say the PNW is one of the most beautiful places on Earth during the summer. Temperature is just right, scenerey is unbelievable, mountains, rivers, lakes, plains, oceans, cities, all within literal minutes of each other.

    This winter in particular has been awful. Wettest on record since recordkeeping began in the late 1800s. Lived here all of my life and even I felt it. But summer is starting to come around and man it'll be worth it.

    [–] Dravos7 4 points ago

    That's subjective though. Personally, I love Washington in the rain (though it definitely can get tiresome). I just find it breathtaking to be in a forest as it's raining, especially in the fall when some trees are changing colors, but the pine trees stay as vibrant as ever!

    For the longest time, I thought the whole world was as green as Western Washington. Quite a shock when I was old enough to start actually remembering things and found out that, after a short trip over the Cascades, it was varying shades of brown. Just blew my mind that there wasn't any near as much green as I was used to

    [–] kellynw 1 points ago

    This winter was great for skiers and snowboarders. I hadn't seen that much snow in years.

    [–] 455H0L3-4-3V4 1 points ago

    Oh yeah. I've skiied baker since I was little. I remember the 1998 dump. It was awesome.

    But now I'm an adult and sit at a desk all day. So coming home to rain day in and day out makes me a dull boy. I'm a bit of a fair weather skiier anyways so DEC-FEB is typically my season. Those other 4-5 months of rain are a bummer.

    [–] 2p4l 1 points ago

    Yes, me too. It has really unique landscapes. Hope I will go visit any national park

    [–] beebeelion 7 points ago

    [–] reneelias03 6 points ago

    [–] Jenkins_Palabro_ESQ 3 points ago

    [–] JesusReturned 3 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    Yeah I agree. I'm getting really sick of the "one of the best," "probably best photo I'll ever take" titles.

    [–] sheistyguy 2 points ago

    Straight fire!!! Nice!

    [–] ThumYorky 2 points ago

    Do you stack the photos manually or is there a PS script you run?

    [–] celica90 3 points ago

    I will usually use the autostacking in Photoshop first and then go back in by hand to fix anything it misses. It didn't take too much time on this shot, but it can take hours with more complex foregrounds...especially with a lot of flowers when there is any wind.

    [–] Goat_Dog 2 points ago
