Pix From My Weekend

Color and light at the volcano

Seattle Times reader Dené Miles' photo of wildflowers and sunset light at Mount St. Helens.

Seattle Times picture editor

Photographer: Dené Miles, Seattle

Photo taken: July 23, Mount St. Helens

Photographer's description: "What a treat to see the wildflowers in full bloom at the mountain. Such a lovely contrast and perfect Northwest summer scene. Used my Nikon D90, with polarizer."

Expert says: "This photo wins hands down with its nice composition and beautiful light on Mount St. Helens. The wildflowers anchoring the image fill the frame with life 30 years after the volcano's eruption. While I'm not a proponent of filters, the polarizer helps even out the direct sunlight in the sky and exposed crater with the foliage in the shadows."

— Kevin Fujii, Seattle Times picture editor
