Mt. Rainier across Clear Lake, shot from a development that's being built on the southwest side of the lake...

Great view, that's for sure, but isn't Rainier a dormant (for now) volcano? I don't think those lots will be worth much when that baby finally blows her top. Nice pic, though.

Rainier isn't completely dormant... it's very much alive. there are steam vents and micro-quakes all the time, and the area is laced with roads labeled "volcano evacuation route". it's actually considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, not because it erupts often (the last one was about 300 years ago), but because it's so close to a densely populated area, and when it goes off again, it will cause a major disaster.

It's a live volcano, and people actually buy lots next to it? Have they gone completely ga-ga??:? When Rainier does finally cook-off, these folks, if they're lucky enough to survive, will no doubt expect the tax-payer to come to the rescue. I don't care how great the view is, that's way beyond reasonable.

Very nice squirl. A great place to visit, photograph, holiday on the lake. But live there full time....? I wouldn't stake my life on it. But then I come from Australia - the most geologically inactive place on the planet - so maybe I'm just not a thrillseeker. :-)

Cheers,
Ollie

Looking at your shot I thought to myself if it is better to live in such a beautiful scenery or somewhere less striking but across the scenery. Whatever the answer may be, that's a very inspirational image. Nevertheless, maybe a little bit of foreground item would serve as an contibutory dimensional element.
Congrats!

Diver, i shot this with a Canon 30D, 1/250 @f13, using a24-135 lens at 85mm. did a bit of tweaking in PP to darken the sky and increase the contrast.
