Mount Baker Wilderness is within the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in the eastern Cascade Range of northern Washington state. The peak of Mount Baker (center of photograph) is at elevation 10,781 feet (3,286 meters) above sea level. The yellow-orange glow on the horizon emanates from the city lights of Seattle, Washington.
This is a two image composite. In the first image I exposed for the sky for 39 seconds; the second image I exposed for the trees and mountain range for 70 seconds.
