I just got back from the most amazing trip of my life. Drove 1000 miles and experienced some of the craziest skies and weather that I've ever seen. I flew into Calgary and drove down to Glacier NP...spent a couple days there then drove up to the Canadian Rockies for a few days before flying home. It was the trip of a lifetime

Unreal skies, peak fall colors, 40-60mph winds, snow storms, huge waves on the lakes...it doesn't get much better for a landscape photographer. It's the first trip where I didn't get worn out after my 9 days shooting. Usually sleeping in my car, lack of food, and driving a ton of miles gets to me...but felt like I could have gone at it for another month. There's just so much opportunity.

This is from Two Medicine Lake. It was one of those sunrises that just doesn't stop giving. From 45 minutes before first light to about 2 hours after sunrise, the light was just awesome. I think I could probably put 10 shots together just from this morning. I've never been able to shoot a sunrise like that, it was one of my best days of my life...an awesome experience in nature that made me feel so alive.
