Growth by Matthew Hahnel


This is a re-edit of a shot from my summer trip to Mount Rainier. I was all excited coming all the way from Australia to shoot the wildflowers, but unfortunately, I arrived at Paradise to a bunch of brown stems of what once were beautiful pinks, purples and yellows.

I wasn’t having much luck with the weather either.. clear blue skies or clouds cloaking the mountain from view. I decided to try something different and headed over to the East side of the park to try my luck at Upper Tipsoo. This was the result. One night of glorious skies in my 10 day trip there, but I think this was worth it.
