(a full size view of this shot is a must)

For the last theme of this year, I am breaking my own rules and am entering a second photo.
Some friends and colleagues in my office insisted I enter this shot as well.
The photo was taken at Medicine Lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
Having gone there to photograph some bears in the area, I had been sitting in the car for over 2 hours while rain was pouring down, hoping to get at least a few shots of wildlife.
All of a sudden the rain stopped , and within a few minutes this gorgeous vista opened up before my eyes.
A print of this photo hangs in my office, and each time I look at it the memories make me smile.

This IS a beautiful picture John. I've been thinking you live near Winnipeg, so this would be several hundred miles drive to capture this???

Yes Larry, you are correct.
It was about 15 hours driving from Winnipeg to the Rocky Mountains.
However, we were there for a two week photoshoot:):)

Wat een grandiose landschapsfoto John.
Dit is waarschijnlijk de laatste foto die ik dit jaar van je zie.
Dus wil ik jou Joyce bij deze een gelukkig en gezond nieiuw jaar toewensen.
