Another great day on the Front. We had an extremely brief sunrise and were desperately trying to make the most of the 5 minutes it lasted…
This time of year I love the early morning light, but will have to admit I really don’t enjoy the 3am wake up call from my alarm clock. With the Front being so close to home, it’s an easy place to do some morning shoots being only an hour and a half distance. Only downside is sunrise is close to 5:30 now.
We had a great morning with my friend John getting some outstanding images. I happened to be on the wrong side of the barbed wire fence when he grabbed some great light hitting a curving road back into the mountains. All in all we made the most of the day exploring some amazing fields of Arrowleaf balsamroots.
I don’t think I had every seen such spectacular displays of flowers that seemed like they were endless against the backdrop of the Rockies.
The only downside was the weather stunk most the rest of the morning. If the weather improves soon it may be worth a trip back up to capture some of these fields of flowers with better skies.
Hopefully the rains will subside soon. Especially for the residents up there. One woman told us they had almost ten inches of rain in one day last week.
Not surprising seeing the flooded creeks and washed out roads. But we shouldn’t complain as it may be sweltering soon.
If you can make it up to the Rocky Mountain Front this time of year, it may be one of your most memorable trips as the scenery is the finest I’ve seen it there in a while.
