About This Photograph
This early summer mountainous scene was photographed in the early morning during the month of June while Zedekiah was flying and exploring the Front Range area known as the Backbone of the World to the east of Glacier National Park above Saint Mary Lake.
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 shrouded the mountains as a backdrop, and in a scene that is utterly impossible to predict, flew into position to get the reflections lined up correctly across the lake surface.
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 hundred (100) prints.
