The Changing Beauty of a Mountain View

Normally, when I share views from Mount Apgar in Glacier National Park, I either share a single picture or several pictures taken weeks or months apart. The interesting thing is that the beauty changes from one day to the next or even within a few hours because of the varying angle of the sun, the shadows, and clouds, plus the changing plants.

I’m doing it differently here. Here are four pictures, taken on Sunday, Monday, this morning, and this evening. In the third image, a pair of hikers are looking out over the view and I especially like the image because it adds depth to get a better idea of the size of the bushes and trees in the foreground. Where they are standing was totally covered in snow to a depth greater than their height, in one of the pictures I shared a few months ago.

The Wild Yarrow is in bloom in these pictures. Those are the flattish umbels of white flowers in the lower right. Everything has leafed out beautifully. In that third picture, heavy rain clouds can be seen in the distance, butting up against the mountains of the Continental Divide. The fourth picture, taken just a few hours later shows the clouds partly broken up.

I’m hoping that by double-clicking the image that it will enlarge the picture, but I’m not sure.

  • Which of the four pictures is your favorite?

    • Yes
    • No
    • 3
    • 4
    • No favorite, I like them all
    • I don’t like any of them


What do you think?
