Glacier National Park
Montana, USA

It was a stunning display of wild flowers bunched up under and around this short stout grove of aspens.  We were just finishing up a workshop in Glacier National Park and the evening light was exquisite.  I had to jump in and shoot the shot, even though I was there for my students and not so much myself – it was one of those beg for forgiveness later moments.  They all completely understood – thanks guys for being Human beings!

With my trusted assistant Trey (aka our son) at my side, I carefully set up the image, metered the scene and with a trip, trip, trip, trip of the shutter we were done, or so we thought.

The saga continued when we got back home and waw processing the film.  This stunning image was nowhere to be found.  I’d lost the film!  It was nowhere to be found (or so we thought) for about 8 months.  Where had it been all that time, one might wonder?  Under the leather sofa in my office at the studio, that’s where.  Holy Cow!, you’ve got to be kidding me, I thought.  The whole chain of events was very illuminating.

See Ya On the Trail!
