The story behind "Fiery Sunrise, Mount Rainier, Tipsoo Lake"

Fiery Sunrise Over Mount Rainier, Tipsoo Lake, Mount Rainier National Park

I captured this image — one of my most popular — on my first attempt, but I certainly wouldn't call it a lucky shot.

It required getting up hours before sunrise, finding my way to the lake in the dark, and waiting for more than a half-hour on the frozen ground for the sun to finally clear the horizon. But the resulting image was definitely worth it.
