"WATERFALL & THE GARDEN WALL"
# MTGL 009

I had come down with a nasty cold just before leaving on this trip to Glacier. Stubbornly, I decided to go anyway and just move at a slower pace. This image was not from a long hike but a short climb above the Going-to the-Sun Highway. I was initially impressed with this waterfall and the way it descended the "stair-step" sedimentary rock, however, this scene was too "contrasty" in direct sunlight. Returning later in the day, a storm began to shroud peaks of the Garden Wall with dark clouds. This rendered the scene with a contrast range that my transparency film could handle. I managed to get two good chromes before the wind made more images impossible.
