MOUNT RAINIER PHOTOGRAPHY
Breathtaking Mount Rainier Photos
Among all the mountains in Washington State, Mount Rainier is the largest, most visited, and the most covered in wildflowers. In fact, the entire region is blanketed in massive fields of wildflowers in the summer, which is a shear delight for Peter James to photograph. Mount Rainier National Park photography is some of the most rewarding work he gets to do. As a single day of shooting, with the right conditions, can yield an amazing variety of photos of Mount Rainier and it's surrounding waterfalls, old growth forests, and abundant wildlife.
MOUNT BAKER PHOTOGRAPHY
Unforgettable Mount Baker Photography
A short drive from Peter James's home in Bellingham, WA, the Mount Baker - Snoqualmie National Forest is a wilderness playground for nature lovers of all kinds. But as a nature landscape photographer, Peter's love for this mountain region is indescribably deep. The peak of Mount Baker itself is a nearly perfect volcanic cone which is extremely picturesque, and Peter has dedicated himself to finding the most unique angles, lighting, and seasons to take Mount Baker photos.
MOUNT SHUKSAN PHOTOGRAPHY
Unique Mount Shuksan Photography
Sitting nearly beside and often confused for Mount Baker, Mount Shuksan holds the record for being the most photographed mountain in the world. The iconic photos of Mt Shuksan reflected in Picture Lake are seen around the world, but Peter James always strives to be unique, photographing Shuksan only when the sunrise clouds behind it are spectacular, when the alpenglow lights it with a wash of pink, or when the first snow of the year is blowing off the peak in a powerful aerial photograph. His Picture Lake photo sets the blazing sun center stage above and below in the reflection, making a memorable Mount Shuksan photo that will brighten even the greyest Pacific Northwest day.
OTHER WASHINGTON MOUNTAINS
The Cascade Range, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and More
Look at a map of Washington State and you will see a lot of green. The majority of those parks and national forests are mountain ranges. The Olympic Mountains rise along the Pacific Ocean. On the other side of the Puget Sound, the Cascade Mountains run from the southern to the northern Washington border, from Oregon to British Columbia. And in the far Northeast corner of Washington, the Rocky Mountains even make a modest appearance. This photo category is a diverse collection of mountain photos that Peter James has taken in the diverse reaches of Washington State, in his characteristic warm, colorful, and exciting style.
