Before the Bear Arrived

These are the pictures I was working on before the black bear interrupted my creative moment.
Along Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park.


Looking through several inches of clear glacier water at a mosaic of stones.

  6. oooh, glass-like waters. they do look so pure. I wonder how they would test for chemicals and pollution. just curious. I would think they would be among the purest of waters and yet...pollution is near inescapable it seems. my fave is the second, with the high def or whatever. it's almost unbelievable that the last photo is looking through water. wow. that's beautiful. great shots John. happy day to you.

    Yep, I've camped near Lake McDonald -- worried all night that a bear would come knocking on my tent flaps.

  13. The colorful rocks are absolutely beautiful. What a wonderful spot for a photographer...even if a BIG bear does saunter into the picture. Love seeing the video and then these pictures. You really did a great job. Take care. genie
