Montana Sky Watch...


Welcome to another great week of Sky Watch Friday, don't forget to go to the sky watch site and visit all the other great post today.

Today's photograph comes from Montana in the area of Glacier National Park. I would like to be able to tell you exactly where I took the photograph but I don't know. I just know we were very close and it was extremely windy and very cold. Some days I am at a loss for words an today is one of those, so that is all for now.

Hi Brad,
An excellent sky watch photo. I'm sorry I haven't visited for awhile, but too much traveling to Virginia I guess. I enjoyed catching up on your blog. I always like to see the bucks chasing the does and it's always exciting to encounter a flock of turkeys.

Nice rainbow! I think Montana is one of the most beautiful U.S. states. Happy Sky Watch!

No talking required, because I still have to pick up my jaw from the floor.

Simply put, this is one excellent shot. I love it.

Great photo.

When my non-photographic friends like a shot, their highest praise is "Wow, you should put that on a calendar!"

You should put that on a calendar. ;o)

Have a great weekend,
Troy

Colin Campbell said...

Very clever catching that rainbow.

Texas Travelers said...

I forgot to ask, Do you have a large format printer?

This needs printing at least 12x16.

Brad: That photo is a real winner even without the rainbow. What a special place to capture the sky.

Reader Wil said...

I simply love rainbows! They are ,as I said last week, signs of hope.

ReluctantFarmChik said...

A rainbow is on my list of things to capture. And Fishing Guy is right - even without the rainbow, this shot would have been stunning. Fantastic share.

Beautiful shot! I love that area, some of the best scenery I've ever seen.

Love the rainbow. We don't have many around here, too much drought. They are once in a blue moon.

That would have even been wonderful without the rainbow.

With it, magical.

Great capture.

Small City Scenes said...

Excellent sky watch photo. Anytime you see a rainbow is wonderful. MB

Tootie said...

That looks like a low rainbow. Really different.

Sandradb said...

Great picture of beautiful landscape and the rainbow is magnificent.

Inkataika said...

This is just amazing view. Without the rainbow it's wonderful but with it just extra ordinary and so touching. I love water with mountais, so I guess you can understand how much I like this photo! Thanks for sharing!

AphotoAday said...

Well, if it's Glacier, it looks like Lake MacDonald to me... You really caught the rainbow well...

RuneE said...

A picture of a rainbow is enough

Bradley Myers said...

Thank you all again this week for the great comments. It was another great Sky Watch Friday.

Aphotoaday, it is not lake MacDonald, the photo was taken outside of Glacier coming in from the southwest.
