    I headed up to Mt. Rainier for one night this past weekend and ended up pulling all-nighter to get these shots. I hope you like them!

    ...And then it was time for the two hour drive home.

    Really nice pictures. I like the first one a lot. That sky full of stars in the second one is unreal!

    Think I like the third shot the best--wonderful colors. The first one kind of looks like a painting. So are those stars in the second?

    These are really beautiful. I think the third is my overall favorite, but I love the base of the broken up rocks in the first.

    Is the 2nd one tilted slightly? Those trees on the right there make me feel like the image is off kilter just a bit.

    How did you get those stars like that? Sheesh.

    Excellent shots, thanks for sharing. I really need to spend some nights up in the mountains.

    These are all beautiful images. I have yet to experience this side of nature.

    Yep, the Milky Way is very visible from up there.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    The meadow in the foreground of the second image is sloped and those trees were pretty much upright but the wide angle distortion tilted them a bit. I'm not sure if I really want to go in and fix it though.

    Thanks for the comments everyone!

    I just notice that I posted this in 'Nature & Wildlife' instead of 'Landscape & Cityscape'. I guess that's what I get for doing this at 4:30 in the morning. :lol:This might not be the best place for this so if an admin would like to move it, I'm fine with that.

    If you ask me, that is nature at its finest... Beautiful shots! :hail: Just my kind of stuff. Do you mind if I ask what EXIF data you had on the second?
