While traveling from
we drove our RV through some extremely
We experienced lightning,
torrents of rain and hail.
Suddenly I saw a thick band of
dark black clouds hovering over the glaciers
in front of us.
“I’m stopping for this one, guys!”
I shouted to my family!
“This is what I have been waiting
for on our trip.”
I’ve always wanted a dramatic
image of this magnitude,
and I have always wanted to
create a large print of what I was

I watched and waited as the brisk changes
in cloud formations occurred with the
ever changing gusts of wind.
Suddenly I saw the feathering of the clouds
with a gleam of light illuminating the glacier.
I exposed only a few images.
The drama of the moment changed
with each passing second.
Without an extraordinary scene,
it does not matter if you have the most
or the best photographic skills.
You have to be there at just the right moment
to capture the glory of God’s marvelous creation.
We made one a 36 x 60 inch Canvas Print and
hung it in the waiting room.
Just before Christmas someone came in and
put a deposit on it.
The next day, they came in to pay the balance and pick up their
print. As they were paying at the cashier's station,
a woman was horrified to see the empty space on
our wall. She said: "What happened to the Glacier
picture! I wanted to give it to my husband for
I told her not to worry, because I would be happy to
make her one as well. So in one day, we sold two
36 x 60 inch scenic photographs.
