The River’s Cool Morning Spray on my Lens

Another morning waking up at 5:00 AM. I’ll admit… even though I sleep very little, getting up before 6 is always a little rough. But it’s what you gotta do if you want to see the sun rise in the north during the summer. Of course, the freezing rivers that rip through the canyons of Glacier National Park offer a thousand opportunities for good lighting at daybreak.

I think I got a little too close to the river here and some of the morning wind kicked up some spray from the rapids onto the lens. In retrospect, I should not have been standing anywhere near that thing!

    Yes – I would say standing in the river is considered a little close in most circles. next time you are in Montana, I’ll loan you my PFD.
