Waterfall Sunset in Glacier National Park

Description

This still garners my label of "favorite" and not so much for the photograph but for the effort and scouting it took to be in position for what was a 5 minute window of opportunity. As I was driving on the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park I spotted a remote waterfall high up on the mountain side that seemed like it would offer a photography opportunity around sunset. As I returned to this location my final night in Glacier a major storm moved in. Nevertheless, I climbed 1000 feet up the mountain side being rained on the entire way and using whatever foliage I could for hand grips. Upon arrival I perched around a small rock ledge and began to wait. I waited for around 2 hours with the storm continually changing directions and blowing the waterfall into my face and raining on me at times. Then for 5 minutes, a whole in the sky opened and lit up the clouds above for a brief period. This photograph is that result.
