Glacier Top 100 of 2015

December 13, 2015  •  48 Comments

It's been a spectacular year (9 months) since I have moved to Columbia Falls. It was a great year of meeting new people, learning new things, and exploring one of my favorite parks in the lower 48. I picked my top 100 photos from the year and put them in chronological order. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them! Here's to a great 2016. If you are in the area be sure to look me up, let's go shoot!

Absolutely beautiful work! The only downside is that these pictures only increase how much I miss this perfect creation of God's. Once you've experienced Montana and Glacier, you can never get them out of your heart. I so envy your being able to be there year round! As well as your ability to produce such perfect pictures of such a perfect poace. Thank you so much for sharing, and please continue photographing Glacier! There are a few of these I would love to try to paint. Are you selling prints?
