Montana Wall Art | Flathead Lake Sunrise Photograph | Nature Photography Wall ArtMontana Wall Art | Flathead Lake Sunrise Photograph | Nature Photography Wall ArtI met a man from Texas who told me I was going to be famous someday. I also met a man who told his wife after telling me how amazing my work was, that all you have to do is sit around and snap photos. Yea ok dude, that’s all that I have to do! I drove four hours on Friday after mowing lawns for eight hours, slept at a truck stop, got up at 4am to drive another hour to Polson, Montana so I could capture this colorful sunrise over Flathead Lake, worked the festival on Saturday, slept in a Walmart parking lot on Saturday night after the show, worked the festival on Sunday, drove five hours back to Big Sky, Montana, mowed lawns for seven hours on Monday, crunched numbers afterwards to see that I only made a $30 profit after all was said and done, only to have to drive another 5 hours back north this upcoming weekend, after having mowed lawns all week to attend the Big Fork Arts Festival. That Texas man was right, some day I will be famous. The closest thing I have found to an ocean out here in Montana, is Flathead Lake. Unlike the endless horizon I was accustomed to back in New Jersey, the eastern shoreline is flanked by the Mission Mountain range. This makes for quite the mindful morning scene. A 4am wakeup call at the Flying J truck stop in Missoula, Montana, followed by an hour drive to the north, led me to the southern shore of Flathead lake. As the dog excitedly chased seagulls around, I found myself patiently awaiting the arrival of the sun. The light grew brighter, as I positioned my camera as low as I could to the rocky shoreline. I captured closed to thirty photographs, with this one being the winner. While I didn't capture the sun in her full essence, I did manage to catch a glimpse of her radiance.
