Images of Washington state show up in three of the 11 finalists for a National Park Service photo contest, including the top spot, which went to the photo above of Mount Rainier.

That photo, of the mountain in the morning, was shot by Matthew Bell of Olympia and took first place. In the honorable mentions were a shot of the schooner Adventuress in the Seattle harbor and another of the Columbia River. All the photos can be seen here.
