That's beautiful! The highest "mountain" arond here is some 50 meters above sea level, doesn't by far look as imposant as Mt Rainer, so well presented in your picture.

Thanks for the kind comments-not an expert on polarizers but without it this photo wouldn't even show the mountain.

Awesome picture! I used a polarizer when hiking a year or 2 ago but haven't this trip, but haven't thought to put one on this trip. When I did think of it, I discovered I didn't have one that fit the lens I'm using mostly.

Very fine photo of an amazing location. Also great example of how useful polarizers can be. Do you have any shots without the polarizer, to show us the difference?

A good example about why you should have a CPL along.
