Another trip and another flight out of SeaTac. I was sitting on the left side of the plane without having given any thought to what I might see en route. As it happened, we departed to the south and then, after a short time in the climb, we turned on course for our destination. It just so happened that our turn brought us around the south side of Mount Rainier. I was sitting on the side that happened to have a great view of the mountain as we turned.
I was sitting down the back of the plane so, for a while, the wing was in the shot. I wasn’t sure whether to be annoyed by this or to have something to give some perspective to what I was shooting. Aerial photos of large landscapes usually lack a sense of scale and I doubt the wing altered that, but it was worth a try. The cloud banks that lay on the surrounding foothills are probably rather large, but they seem almost insignificant against the scale of the mountain. A lucky day to be heading the right way, sitting on the right side of the plane, turning where we did and then not having the whole thing shrouded in cloud!
