Sun Rays Across Red Eagle Mountain
Location Origin Story
Above the eastern entrance to Glacier National Park on the edge of the Blackfeet Reservation, we can see sun rays delicately illuminating Red Eagle Mountain. To the lower right of Red Eagle Mountain lies Saint Mary Lake, reflecting the diffused image of clouds above the lake. On the Lower left side of the mountain we can see Red Eagle Lake and the faint traces of Red Eagle River as it flows serpentine-like towards Saint Mary Lake.
Surrounding Red Eagle Mountain in the background are the many rugged mountains of the Lewis Range; Gunsight Mountain, Almost a Dog Mountain, Blackfoot Mountain, Going to the Sun Mountain, and a host of other prominent mountains that make up this iconic national park.
About This Photograph
This extraordinary scene was filmed by Zedekiah from his bush plane at daybreak one June morning while flying and exploring the area south 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 shrouded the mountains 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.
This image comes with a very rare Cinematic Provenance Film made to illustrate how the photograph was acquired.
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 Five Hundred (500) prints.
There are Fifty (50) artist proofs available.
