October Desktop Wallpaper / Here Comes the Sun

On our trip to Missoula last month Aiofe and I stopped in Glacier National Park twice.  On our first stay there we arrived at the St. Mary’s entrance pretty late and so we weren’t able to get a campsite.  Sleeping in the car isn’t so bad unless you can’t recline your seats due to your car being packed.  On the bright side we were ready to go before sunrise.

This is an image of St. Mary Lake just pass the Rising Sun campsite in Glacier National Park.  The sun is just seconds away from revealing itself over the mountain horizon.  The sun’s light is diffused by an interesting patch of clouds.  I think all the events in combination helped me to be there at the right moment.

Here comes the sun…
