Mt Rainier at Sunset from a Commercial Flight
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Nature!
OP -rabid- explains:
Since this is turning out to be pretty popular, here's a full res version in case anyone wants to use it as a desktop background or make a print: 3639x2436. It's not my livelihood, I don't care.
OP was given $25 in ChangeTip money for the photo. Sweet!

That looks too clear for being shot out a plane window.
That's what some of the Redditors said too.

I've taken many a picture out of airplane windows, and many of them were of Rainier, and no matter how good your camera, you can not overcome the unclear plastic windows.
He says: "Pro Tip: the closer your lens is to a window, the less distortion you get in the image. In this case I had my lens practically touching the window."
