This is one of the most popular spots to stop and take a picture of St Mary’s Lake. Cars would stop, someone would jump out, take a quick picture, and off they went. I knew the sunset was going to be special, so I hung out, marked my spot, and waited for the perfect moment. Knowing the rule of sunsets; when the sun cast it’s orange, yellow and red hues, it’s not over, yet that’s when most photographers pack it in. I like to wait for the possible second round of color, the more soft, purple pastels. They don’t always come, but when they do, it’s magic.

It was at the end of the season for Glacier National Park. After seeing St. Mary’s Lake during the day, I knew I had to come back to hit this spot for a sunset shot. This is one of the more popular spots and the clouds that day gave me a clue that the sunset could be interesting. I wasn’t disappointed, as many fellow photographers lined up for this amazing sunset.

I’m sure there are alot of forgotten dreams and abandoned homesteads across this great nation. This one off Highway Interstate 90 in Montana has seen better days, but now just lost in the grass fields that surround it, ever decaying. I walked the grounds of this weather-stained house and the surrounding farm for quite awhile wondering about the family that once cared for it, the memories that were made here and the kids that must have grown-up playing and working in these rolling hills. It seemed to sit out in the middle of nowhere. Farming equipment, cars and trucks, just rusting, frozen in time. It appeared, the owners just got up one day and left. As I drove away, I kept looking in my rear-view mirror, as it slowly faded away, and how somewhere in someone’s memories, this place..has faded away.

Hi I’m Dave Morgan “The Travel Bugster”, on a world trekk to find the most beautiful places to photograph in (HDR) aka “High Dynamic Range” photography. Follow me as I attempt to bring you a daily photo of exciting places to visit and also show you basic HDR techniques I used along the way. One of the fun things I love to do is fly to a city, rent a car and head for the back roads in search of beautiful vistas to photograph. This photo “A River Runs Through It” was taken in Montana heading south toward Yellowstone National Park.
