Skies of Mt. Rainier

The sky here is so blue and the scenery so beautiful that it was hard to choose a few favorite images.
A snag in a field of flowers against a few high clouds.
A meadow of yellow glacier lilies and white anemones below Mt Rainer.
No wonder this place is called "Paradise"

Breathtaking images! In the middle one, I love how the wispy clouds mimic the snow trails on the mountain and the flowering plants in the foreground.

Deeply moving images ...

These are spectacular, Martha - esp when enlarged! I love the first with the white tree against the blue sky and those Paintbrush at its feet. However, Rainer is in a category all its own.

Beautiful photos and so nostalgic for me. Years ago, we lived in Puyallup and could see Mt. Rainier from our back porch (when it was "out")! Thank you for sharing.

Wonderful shots, it is hard to pick a favorite but I like the first with the snag an the wispy ropy clouds above it.

Mt Rainier is always gorgeous and you've certainly done it justice. Love that old snag reaching for the sky. Great captures.
