Glacier Spectrum by BradLeeDaleNorth Glacier Spectrum by BradLeeDaleNorth
After arriving to Glacier, I was told by locals, the last two weeks have been nothing but gray skies, rain, and snow. The last bit of a recent three foot drop was melting and promising light just didn't seem possible. After cursing the conditions and muttering under my breath, maybe slight pouting as well, the skies began to open a bit. A rainbow formed in the valley and my rantings were quickly silenced. From that point on, I have stopped becoming frustrated when conditions don't work out. Mother Nature will do what she whats, when she wants to do it. You either adapt to it and push on or continue being let down.

the portions where the clouds are thinner and the snow covered mountains at the horizon add something misty to the photo. I simply love it. Almost perfect.
Did you use a GND filter? The tree tops are way darker than the rest of the foreground.

Thank you! I did not use a grad at the time. This is a manual blend of two exposures. I tried to keep the underexposed shot from creeping in on the trees but each time I did, no matter the amount of Gaussian blur I would apply, I noticed a hint of ghosting around the edges. So instead of fighting it, I went ahead and kept the GND appearance.

The curve of the river really draws the eye up to the mountains and on to the rainbow, then down accross the green expanse of forest in the foreground. The composition is brilliant and the image well-focussed.

I'm glad you persevered despite the conditions, this photograph must have made it worth it. :)

Well thank you so much for the kind words! In all honesty this image was initially passed over. A portrait orientation shot of the same areas was chosen over this one first, although I was never too happy with it. After a while I feel like I can see with new eyes so digging back through the hard drive I was excited to pass by it again. Thank you for the support!

You mean "From the Edge" with Peter Lik on the Weather Channel?? I love that show!!! He actually just shot in Montana in a recent episode.

Yeah, that guy! I stumbled across it the other day. Now I record it! That seems to be the direction you're headed from the shots you've been putting up recently. I really admire your work. Especially when you don't go all happy in Photoshop, lol!

Montana, that's where you're from? How was it to see your state through another photographer's lens? Do you want to go shoot some of the places he was at? Have you shot any of the places he chose to go?

Well thank you so very much! I'm keeping the PS to a minimum as much as possible. It pays to do more work in the field. :)

I am not from Montana, this picture is from when I visited there. I bet he shot Glacier National Park but I haven't seen the episode yet.

Love the green tones and the light on the peaks and on top of this this gentle rainbow. Nice work, and good decision. :-)
