For several years now I've rarely photographed without using a tripod. However, with the advent of higher ISO image quality, faster lenses, and lens stabilization technology there is more freedom than ever to shoot without support. On this stormy morning in Glacier National Park, I knew immediately that going "hand-held" was the best way to keep up with the quickly evolving conditions. I increased my ISO level and shutter speed then composed the image to include all of these dynamic elements in a single shot. The resulting image underscored to me the importance of moving quickly when conditions are changing rapidly, because if you don’t, you will likely miss out.
