Series (4)

The pictures in this gallery are "series"—pairs of photos of the same subject, taken at different seasons or periods in the life cycle. However, this page is a bit different from others in this gallery. Here we have a sequence of four images taken in the same location, several minutes apart. These exposures were made during a stormy sunrise in Glacier National Park. The series shows Mt. Sinopah across Pray Lake, in the park's Two Medicine area, as the sun rises, hitting the mountain through a tiny gap in the dense clouds. The sequence begins at 5:30 AM and ends 25 minutes later on June 27, 2013.

We have an article about making this series of photos.
