North Fork Valley Looking North into Canada
Location Origin Story
Flying up the North Fork Valley, following the Flathead River’s north fork as it flows towards Flathead Lake 80 miles to the south, behind us. We are looking north across the border into Canada. The tall peak towards the right center of the image is Packhorse Peak, and to its right, actually sitting in front of it, is Tombstone Mountain, so called for its square-topped peak.
To the right along the horizon are mountains from the Livingston Range, and to the left are mountains from the Flathead National Forest and the Whitefish Range. Starvation Ridge and Starvation Peak are on the border to the right, this is the entrance to the Akimina Kishinena Provincial Park.
About This Photograph
This Rare scene of the North Fork Valley was filmed by Zedekiah from his bush plane on a beautiful September afternoon while flying and exploring the North Fork Valley area East of Glacier National Park.
The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera. It was taken in inclement atmospheric conditions with a combination of low-hanging cumulus clouds rapidly moving storm front that was difficult to maneuver around.
Zedekiah used the manner in which these clouds covered the horizon as a backdrop, a scene that is utterly impossible to predict, timing and being in the place-in-space for this scene to reveal itself was crucial to this image composition.
Lastly, it is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
This image is offered as a numbered and signed, limited edition of one thousand (1,000) prints.
There are one hundred (100) artist proofs available.
