Snapshot Saturday


Sunrise, the shadow of Mt. Rainier, in Washington State, as viewed from Graham-Kapowsin High School one day in October 2011. This is my seventh year teaching at this school and I have never seen this before. The mountain cast a huge shadow at sunrise. Lots of students and staff ran out of their classes to take a picture. It was such a rare phenomenon.  Very cool.

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by Alyce over at At Home with Books.

  6. That is so cool! As much as I hate mornings, I often find myself admiring sunrises...when I'm up early enough to see them. ;)

  7. That is so cool! I've never seen anything like it, and we have some tall mountains in this part of the valley (usually obscured by Oregon rain clouds).

  8. Great capture. Must have been just the right time and day to have that occur.

  11. The shadow of Mt. Rainier lasted a very short time, probably less than five minutes. I happened to look up and see it then ran to find my phone so I could snap a picture before the magic disappeared.
