Photo: "Break the Mold"

Glacier National Park, Montana

It seems that lately, friends of mine on G+ are sharing photos that are outside of their comfort zone, so I thought I'd share one of mine that falls into that category. 

I shot this image during a recent trip to Glacier National Park with family. Having lived in California my entire whole life, I never really had a chance to see mountains like this until this trip and I'll just say, they were glorious! 

When I began editing the images, I saw this shot and loved the snow patterns and clouds, but didn't feel like it had the impact I had hoped for. I mucked with it for about 15 minutes and then suddenly realized it had to be in B&W. 

Those of you who know my work, know I engage in minimal processing for 98% of my images and rarely convert to B&W, so this is definitely an image I feel is unique for my catalog, but I'm pleased with how it turned out.
