Photo of the day: Rope Rescue Training

I got a call at my office on the 4th of May. It was Glenn Kessler, one of our climbing program supervisors, asking if I'd like to come out and photograph their team conducting a rope rescue session. I had a lot of work to do, but how can you turn down such an opportunity? There's nothing cooler than photographing rangers at work in the beautiful, vertical terrain of Mount Rainier National Park. As it turned out, it was even more interesting than that, as most of the training occurred in the midst of a spring snowstorm. I set up my camera on the far side of the canyon and shot through the snow, which gave the images an even more dramatic and atmospheric look than they would have had otherwise.
