A Play Of Color Tones

There in the middle of my Lightroom collection was an image that made me stop for a double take. Far too many of my pictures sit and are never seen. I discount them for one reason or another. Months or years later I go back with fresh eyes and see the work differently. This is where the ”hummm” ðŸ¤” becomes ”oh yeah!” ðŸ˜ƒ That was yesterday. Today I share the old but new image.

Summer 2018 I was intrigued by the West Tunnel on the Going-To-The-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. I wanted to photograph it, but I knew the light was critical. For three days I kept my eyes on how the light moved and bounced through the tunnel; shadow directions and depths. My final day the skies granted me the light to be able to play with dramatic color tones. The shaded arch of the overlook window port offered the cool contrasting line to the warmer light filtering down the tunnel walls. Was it worth three days of watching the light, 4000+ miles and six months waiting?
