Usually a fog, haze or even smog obscures the view of Mount Baker, Washington, from way over here in Sidney, British Columbia. But on a clear day, it looks massive.
I made this image about an hour and a half after my orca shot. I love how the sunset makes the snow look slightly pink.
Because I was on my boat, and there were some waves, I needed a fast shutter speed. I made this image at 1/800th of a second.
To get that fast shutter speed in relatively low light, I had to pump up the ISO to 1250, which causes a bit of noise, but nothing Lightroom can’t handle.
I would rather have a bit of noise in my image from a high ISO than have a blurry image from a shutter speed that is not fast enough.
