Original – 360° panorama from the summit of Mount St. Helens as seen in October of 2009. In the foreground is the ice-covered crater rim. Visible in the lower center is the lava dome. Steam rises from several dome vents. Above the dome, in the upper center, lies Mount Rainier and Spirit Lake. Mount Adams appears to the right of Rainier on the horizon as well as Mount Hood and Mount Jefferson on the far right. Also on the far right are glimpses of the Swift Reservoir, Yale Lake, Lake Merwin and the Lewis River. Climbers stand on the crater rim and are visible along the Monitor Ridge climbing route.

Upon completion of some research, I was able to verify that, Farwestern is a guy named Gregg M. Erickson, and it appears that he took the picture. Link for verification (Picture is second from the top). That is about the best proof i could find besides his account here on Wikipedia or on Commons. Hope that answers your question.

That's great; I was a little confused because the first time I saw this it still had the template text under 'creator' Clegs (talk) 13:26, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Oppose As per my vote on Commons FPC. It's a great picture, which is only spoiled by unproper stitching (non straight horizon). - Blieusong (talk) 18:12, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
Where exactly is the horizon not straight? Dusty777 (talk) 18:32, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
I'd say about everywhere. It looks both slightly leaning to the left, and wavy with two noticeable "bosses" (hope I got the english word right) in the middle and in the right, and I don't think it's due to the relief. It's not that it is this annoying, but author could have taken a few minutes to fix it (easy stuff as far a I know). - Blieusong (talk) 21:59, 9 December 2011 (UTC)
I see what your saying, and taking a closer look, i can see it does appear to lean to the left a little bit. I don't thinks its too noticeable, unless you're looking for it. Dusty777 (talk) 01:42, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Support. Wonderful panorama. - Darwinek (talk) 19:31, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
  • Support A crisp image that also has nice details in it (cloud formations, snow drifts, climbers). While it is slightly offset (leaning to the left), it is still worthy of featured picture status. Northamerica1000(talk) 13:53, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
