Two Medicine Lake

Glacier National Park
Sky Watch Friday


Sometimes you have to take what Nature gives you.
We only had a couple of hours in the late afternoon to visit here.
Not the best conditions to photograph a lake and mountains.
Such as shooting into the Sun with 70% cloud cover.
It was an interesting sky though.

Two Medicine Lake
(Click on the photo to see the colors in the water)


The gusting wind was causing ripples on the lake,
therefore, there were no nice reflections.
It did cause one interesting phenomena:
Ghostly reflections of the mountains and sky.
Also notice all of the colors in the water.
How many different colors do you see in the water?

To participate in Sky Watch Friday visit Wiggers World.

Who cares if the weather didn't cooperate? It was beautiful. Glacier National Park is one of my favorite places on the planet.

Once upon a time there was this great and fantastic group of people who blogged and photographed … with a click, click here, a snap, snap there, all of them had a week to look upon the sky … day and night, by dusk or dawn, sunrise or sunset … and always there where great and fantastic photos to be seen when SKY WATCH was opened …

I am one of those proud sky watchers and I really enjoy each and every one of the photos you show us. I really think you are a first class sky watcher!

I think the reflection is lovely. I love the water's texture.

I found you on "Black holes and astrostuff" and thought I'd check out your blog. I'd love to subscribe to your blog but you don't have a "subscribe by email" thingie. Think you might be willing to add a Feedburner email subscription link to your blog so peeps like me who don't do feeds and don't remember to go around checking other people's blogs will get notified when you've posted something new?

As I go from site to site this morning, I am constantly being reminded that the world is a beautiful place. The clouds turn this beautiful place into something magical and overwhelming. You have captured it so well. Thank you.

- Cheers from Canada.

Rose said...

Wow, you sure have some gorgeous photos on here. I am trying to get around to as many sky watchers as I can, but have to tell you I really liked some of the others...the one in sepia tones I guess it would be. It is fantastic!

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Hmm.. I think it turned out fabulous considering your sky cover. I personally like to take pictures under these conditions because of all the nifty color tones that appear and the "ghost" shadows that appear when I load them up onto my computer that I had no idea were there before I took the photo!
Very nice picture!

Sharon said...

That is an outstanding photo! If I had taken it it would be framed on my wall!! Wonderful!

raf said...

It's a great sky image, Troy!

Beautiful picture.

Aileni said...

Incredible, impressive picture. I don't know whether to congratulate you on your luck or applaud the hard work you put into getting your shots. Both I think.

Stacey Huston said...
