This is not your usual photograph of Glacier National Park, but I've been into textures and small details the past few months, and this is one of my favorites. Seed pods, flowers, tiny fallen leaves, bark and moss, even the gorgeous swirls of my blond cat.
This photograph was taken in Glacier last August, in an area known as the Sunrift Gorge. The light was perfect, the color of the rocks in the streambed was amazing, and the water was so clear, if it hadn't been moving, it would have been invisible. For scale, note the grey-blue bird at the top center. It's one reason my eye was drawn to the scene.
