So I lost the original file from this one a few months back which gave me an opportunity to revamp it for an awesome project that I’m working on. Any who last flower season provided one of the largest Bear Grass blooms I’ve ever seen. Sun Top lookout provides amazing 360 degree views of Mt. Rainier and the Olympics but man it can be tough to find a decent composition without too much clutter. This was taken just as the sun was illuminating the slopes of the mountain and filtering through the Bear Grass which seemed to catch and amplify the ambient light. It really was pretty cool to see these flowers light up in a rich glow as the sun began to fade away. The amount of light you see here is what was actually occurring, I actually had to decrease the saturation a bit in some of the channels because the glow was just that strong.

Hope you guys enjoy it!
