Get Outside: Basking in the Alpenglow

Explorer

Scott Kranz



Get Outside is a weekly dose of inspiration to get you off the couch and enjoying what nature has to offer.

This adventure was definitely one for the books. My friend had never been snow camping before, so I thought what better place to go than the Mt. Baker backcountry in Washington State. We trekked from Heather Meadows up past Artist Point and Huntoon Point and found the perfect camp spot situated between Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan. Although the evening and night were overcast and partially cloudy, we woke up to beautiful clear skies and, best of all, this image of Mt. Baker basking in alpenglow! I captured this photograph and then stopped to soak in all of the mountain glory around us.

Vantage, Washington

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

Three weeks before my sister turned 24 she texted me to ask if I wanted to go on a trip for her birthday. She wasn’t sure where she wanted to go but she knew she wanted to be outdoors.

It all started with a simple Google search. My buddy, Cameron, and I were procrastinating studying for our law school finals when we started daydreaming about a getaway.
