Moraine Lake and South Sister Sunrise by greglief Moraine Lake and South Sister Sunrise by greglief
Thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery. Faves and comments are always appreciated! Also, I invite you to download this image to use as desktop wallpaper. Please respect my work by not printing, selling, or reposting it.

South Sister is the third highest peak (10,358 feet) in the state of Oregon. I hiked/climbed to the summit several years ago, and stopped at sunrise to take this photograph of the mountain's reflection in Moraine Lake (6,450 feet elevation). Because I was not carrying my tripod, I tried to steady the camera on rocks to get as long an exposure (1/8 second) as possible. The high wind prevented me from getting a completely still reflection, but it was still quite nice.

(Nikon D70, Nikon 12-24 lens, circular polarizer, f/11, 1/8 second, handheld)

Special thanks to :iconivanandreevich:, who saw this in my PBase gallery and suggested that I post it here.

The colours and scene are wonderful. It looks very peaceful and I like how the composition is created with the golden coloured hill in the foreground working with the mountain face.

This is a really nice shot, even though hand-held at 1/8 sec. I would never have know you didn't use a tripod, Greg. You took on the wind and won! What is amazing about this is the smooth, bare, sandy-appearing area on the left. Is that a normal scene for higher altitudes, or is it green grass turned tan? Either way, it is quite a striking feature.
