At week long workshops the days get long!  If you decide to sleep in, this could happen!  So you don’t sleep in!!  This morning our group went to Many Glacier and caught spectacular light on Mount Grinnell.  It was cold and little windy, but well worth any pain!  Walking down to the national park lodge, just to the right out of the frame above, for breakfast I turned and looked back up the hill and got a great surprise, on of our student walking along the ridge in silhouette!

 

Thanks Joel, you afforded a great shot opportunity!!  With every step we found fun things to photograph and I love sharing them with you guys!!!

Breakfast with some of the gang!!  What could be better!  We are having a wonderful time in a drop dead gorgeous park!  In spite of all the wonderful photographic opportunities, it’s the fellowship that glows the brightest!  The shooting hasn’t been too shabby either!  Enjoy!!

 

We truly wish you were here with us!

Well, finally, today is the day.  Our friends and team are arriving from all over America and meeting in Saint Mary tonight!  I love to tease Jim, that it takes him three hours to drive a ten minute route, with needing to stop every ten feet to make a photo!!!  I love his enthusiasm about territory undiscovered so I figured since the team arrives today at around 1:00 p.m. and it is a 2.5 hour drive to Saint Mary, I should give them about 7 hours to make it!!  The drive up Going To The Sun Highway is not your average drive!

 

Time Olive, Photography specialist for In Touch Ministries, and I drove to every single location yesterday to check out the conditions, and mark the GPS spots.  I can’t wait to share this great park with our guests!  Here are a few images I made while “working” yesterday.  God is Good!!!

All day on planes, and then Charles, Brad, Phillip, Tim and I started our scouting.  Was a beautiful day, just too sunny for photography, but we got to Avalanche Creek late in the day and the falls was in the shade.  The best shot was from above the falls up the trail, nice climb but worth it!!!  Great day visiting with Charles and the guys, I will be out at O:Dark thirty tomorrow to try a sunrise at Lake McDonald and then continue scouting.  Can’t wait for my team to arrive Saturday!

 

What a blessing to do this for a living!  More tomorrow after a few hours sleep!!!
