For My Sister: Bowman Lake
Glacier National Park, Montana
I took my kid sister up to beautiful Bowman Lake in Glacier National Park one afternoon. Bowman is a long way from anywhere and as we arrived it began to rain.
Fortunately Bowman never fails to delight me. After five minutes the sun popped back out. A rainbow briefly appeared and then the clouds began to break up around the mountain peaks. Seizing the moment my sister jumped up on an old stump and struck the perfect pose.
Great photography requires skill and practice. "Practice, practice, practice" is my mantra but sometimes there is no simply substitute for good luck!
