Glacier

July 2012: Drought and record high temperatures are scorching the Midwest. Our home turf has become a sea of crunchy brown grass. We need rain but it's not coming soon enough.

So we head to Montana and Glacier National Park. There we discover some of the most soaring and dramatic landscapes on earth; bears, mountain goats, and marmots; rainbows, waterfalls, and lakes smooth as mirrors; the most delicious bakery ever; and most of all, a place to go back to when we have more time.

Presented here are 270 images from this 8-day trip. I found it more difficult than ever to pare down from the 1200 or so shots I took, and of course 270 is probably too many for easy perusal. Regardless I hope you enjoy them, and please feel free to copy and share the photos, of course keeping in mind the Creative Commons license assigned to my photo collections.

These photos were shot with two cameras: a Canon 60D using a 15-85MM IS USM lens, and a Canon S100. The S100 proved to be an amazing little pocket camera, and I could carry it places where the 60D would be in danger from the elements, falling off cliffs, etc. You can see from the displayed metadata what I used for each shot, which I find useful for understanding what settings work in which circumstances.

Enough jabber, check out the photos!
