[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
NISQUALLY GLACIER is one of the larger glaciers on the southern face of Mount Rainier in the U.S. state of Washington. The glacier is one of the most easily viewed on the mountain, and is accessible from the Paradise visitor facilities in Mount Rainier National Park. The glacier is currently retreating. Measurements made at 9,200 feet (2,800 m) altitude show that glacier got 56 ft (17 m) thicker between 1994 and 1997, suggesting that it will probably begin advancing in the first decade of the 21st century. Nisqually Glacier is the source of the Nisqually River

Perhaps the longest studied glacier on Mount Rainier, Nisqually's terminal point has been measured annually since 1918. In May 1970, the glacier was measured to be moving at an average of 29 inches (740 mm) per day.
Best views for this Glacier is from the skyline trail where you can see the Glacier and the bedrock and if you look at the opposite side you can see the other mountain ranges and Nisqually river.
Thanks for visiting.

Nice view Muhammad. I like the use of the rocky FG leading into the impressive mountain! Thirds always works well.

Couple of dust spots that could be cloned out. See WS...

Hi Muhammad.

A scene fit to stare at in wonderment, I so like the rugged foreground as a contrast to the snow capped mountain. You present this in a very precise and appealing way. Its one of those images that many would want to be standing there taking this. Neat job, tfs

Hi Muhammad,
What a lovely glacier in this mountain scape. Great light management and beautiful vivid colors. I like the green FG contrasting with the mountain containing a considerable amount of snow.
An agreeable POV.
Well done for this neat work. A remarkable postcard!

Hi Muhammad, a stunning and eye catching presentation - I like the stony foreground leading to the massive Mountain with its white snow in contrast to the splendid blue sky.
Thanks for sharing - kind regards Monika
