Here’s a bit of a throwback I found as I was going through my archives yesterday. This was an amazing morning we had on Swiftcurrent Lake while I was working with Ken Burns on his National Parks film in Glacier National Park. It was a real privilege to be involved with such an important project and film about our National Parks and also to work with such an incredibly talented group of people.

Love this photo, Jason! I just – finally – watched the first episode of “Ken Burns’ National Parks: America’s Best Idea,” and loved that. Burns does a great job on every subject he focuses on, and obviously hires good people for his crews. It’s great to see him so obviously enjoying himself while working on the series, no doubt with heightened emotion because of the incredible natural beauty with which you were all surrounded. (I’m a big film buff, in general, and am always interested in seeing directors et al. at work.) I love the composition – triangles and inverted triangles from the mountains and trees, a big triangle of perspective, and even a triangle created by Burns and Squires and a small one in Burns’ nose, pointing us away from the perspective – a little visual “break.” Thanks for sharing it.
