I was headed north on I-82 from Yakima to Ellensburg, Washington where I would pick up I-90 west to Seattle. At the Vanderbilt Gap above Ellensburg there is a viewpoint on the highway. Normally, I'd drive by. But, on this morning the Wenatchee Mountains were lit in the early morning light reminding me, once again, why I live in the Pacific Northwest.
The image was a compromise. I did not have my tripod with me. I had to rely on the image stabilization of the lens for a fully extended telephoto to capture a subject some forty miles distant.
Canon EOS 50D, f/9 @ 270 mm, 1/200, ISO 100, No Flash
