DescriptionMars sets over Mt. Rainier on September 21, 2003; the closest it's been in nearly 60,000 years. Mars appears larger than its true size due to light scattering from the edge of the cloud and in the film grains.

Michael Williams, Seattle Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement I am a professional night landscape photographer with over 15 years of experience. My portfolio has all the major Cascade peaks framed by comets, planets, constellations, and star clusters. I search out back road viewpoints that to my knowledge have not been professionally photographed. (Guided tours are available.) I also use artificial light to illuminate mountains with the help of a volunteer group, the Northwest Light Brigade.
You can see all of my night landscapes, along with technical data, on flickr:
