Storm Clouds Over Two Medicine Lake

Introduction

Yesterday, I posted a story about St Mary Lake in Glacier National Park, Montana.  That photo shows a clear blue sky.  The photo above was taken on the same day.  Note the change in the sky.  The storm clouds had really moved in by the time we reached Two Medicine Lake.  

Sales Pitch, Right Up Front

The photograph is available from my Etsy Shop, LightIntoArt, in a wide variety of sizes and formats.  Choose glossy photo paper prints in three sizes:  8×10, 11×14, 16×20.  Or if you prefer something larger, choose canvas prints in 16×20, 24×36, or 30×40 inches.  Finally, for a spectacular display, you can get this image in 3 panel side-by-side canvas prints at 24 x 72, 36 x 72, or 40 x 90 inches.  The video below gives you an idea of what these sizes are like in a living room, bed room or office setting.

Driving in Montana

Here in Montana, we measure distance by time, not miles.  I live three hours away from Glacier National Park, practically next door by Montana standards.  My partner and I visit Glacier three to four times each year, and I always have my camera with me.  We love taking visitors through the park, and one such trip took place on July 20th, 2019.  The glaciers that give the park its name are disappearing, leaving in their wake majestic mountains, gorgeous lakes, and scenery that never stops. 

On that July day, we entered the Park at West Glacier, drove up and over Going-to-the-Sun highway, came down the east side of the Park, then drove U.S. Highway 2 along the southern edge of the Park.  All told roughly 150 miles, which took the better part of the day as heavy traffic, a 45 mile per hour speed limit, and numerous stops for photography all added up.  And that doesn’t count the six hours round trip from home to the Park and back.

Changing Weather

Another thing about Montana is that the weather is always changing.  We say that if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.  I’m sure folk in other places say the same thing.  Our July drive was a good example.  We had beautiful blue skies, with a few clouds through most of the day.  Some threatening clouds began appearing later on, and by the time we got to Two Medicine Lake, the sky was quite dramatic.  My Storm Clouds over Two Medicine Lake is one of my favorite Glacier Park shots.
