Photographer: Melody Leung, Seattle

Photo taken: Jan. 19, Tiger Mountain

Photographer's description: “Sunday hike on a beautiful foggy afternoon. Silence and peace under the cathedral of trees in the mist. Photo was taken around 2:30 p.m. with my iPhone 5. No modifications were made.”

Expert says: “What’s so great about technology today is that we can just pull out our phone to document what we see and experience. We don’t necessarily have to lug around a bulky camera to get that shot, which is nice on a hike such as where this photo was taken. I love the lines of the trees and how some are silhouetted and others are faded because of the fog. Tip: Try waiting for a moment to happen, such as a bird flying through the white space or one of your hiking buddies walking through the base of those trees, to add another element to this striking photo.”

-- Katie G. Cotterill, Seattle Times photo staff
