Mount Rainier

This is the famous Mount Rainier, - 14,411 ft (4,392 m)
From the location of this shot, I was about 64 miles North of Mount Rainier. Since Rainier is a volcano, like it's sister peaks in the Cascade range, it is considered a very dangerous volcano.

The mountain was called "Tahoma" by the Native Americans... It is a large active volcano located 54 miles (87 km) south-southeast of Seattle, in the Mount Rainier National Park. It is the most topographically prominent mountain in the contiguous United States and the Cascade Volcanic Arc, with a summit elevation of 14,411 ft (4,392 m).[4][5]

I like the view from this spot because it shows the enormity of this massive peak....I hope you like it ;-)

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
