This scene is right off the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park.  I’ve passed it in my car numerous times and always thought it would be nice under the right conditions, but I never encountered those conditions.  Either it was too bright, too dark, or I was simply in a hurry to get somewhere else.  However, everything came together on a July afternoon this year.  A rainy day brought me over Logan Pass from my campsite on the east side of the park to shoot the Trail of the Cedars, which looks the best after a rain shower.  After finishing up there I caught this creek in great conditions.  A huge runoff from the much higher than average snowfall and nice filtered light from the rain clouds in the sky really made the scene beautiful and photogenic.

There are two poles in my photography life: Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park.  They lay in opposite directions but both have an irresistible tug on me whenever I think about where I should go for an extended photography trip.   Over the winter I decided that this summer I would focus heavily on Glacier thereby satiating me long enough to go elsewhere next summer (I’ve heard there is a land of endless rain, the greenest greens and a calm, endless ocean west of here).  So, I’ve made three short trips this summer and now embark on an extended nine day photography trip.   Will I find some satisfaction or will she trap me in her embrace even further?  I worry about either eventuality.

Until late August.

And so it ends.  A day late.  Sorry for the delay.  I wanted to end on an especially fresh image so made a quick trip to Yellowstone mid-week.  With bright blue skies and hot temperatures (for Yellowstone) I decided it was an excellent time to photography Grand Prismatic Springs which is best shot with noon-day light and blue skies.  This photograph was actually captured from a hillside maybe a quarter of a mile away from the spring, zeroing in on just a portion of the spring and it’s colorful run-off.    A beautiful view.

Thanks for taking the time to view my images.  I will continue to try to post a new image on Facebook every day and the Blog will return to larger instructional posts as well as more photo essay like posts.  Until the next project.
