One location, 2 different days, 2 different moods

August 26, 2010

After spending the early morning hours photographing at Reflection Lake at Mt. Rainier a couple of weeks ago, my friend Vicki Braden and I decided to head to Tipsoo Lake in the hope of catching a nice reflection of the mountain there. When we arrived the water was still calm enough to offer a nice picture.

However, we both agreed we should return the following morning to catch the first light on the mountain. Here is the result.Ā  Same location, a different day, a very different mood.

    I love this post and the two images, Beate. Often we don’t think of landscapes as having personality but here you’ve shown that the same place is just as complex and interesting as any person we might choose to photograph. These days I’m enjoying the “first light” approach šŸ˜‰

    Great example of how very different the same location can look! For decades, I’ve shot scenes of our valley, lake, and peaks from the same 2-mile radius. No two are ever the same. Today, your first light image appeals to me…perhaps because this night owl rarely see sunrises šŸ˜‰ Good job!!!
