Avalanche Creek by Jacob-Routzahn

For a nice change of pace, the weather was overcast for the afternoon and my buddy and I decided to take advantage of it at Avalanche Creek. The wonderful lighting allowed for so many more shots that we wouldn't have been able to shoot if the sun was out in full force. 

As I walked along the stream, admiring the rock features carved from the glacial water, I noticed a gorgeous juniper all by itself. It stood out so perfectly with its bright foliage and the mineral rich, blue waters lapping at its roots below, I just had to find a composition. 

Almost as quickly as I decided to take a picture of this intimate landscape, I already had the composition in my head. The wicked contrast of the juniper's needles and the unbelievably blue waters, actually the most colorful stream I've ever witnessed, provided a superb contrast in cool colors. The clarity of the water was also so amazing and with a small adjustment of the polarizer, the glare vanished and the colors popped. 

I hope you all have as much fun looking at this image as I did photographing and processing it!

Mountain Treasure by Jacob-Routzahn
Mountain Treasure
A steep climb along a lush waterfall brought a fellow photographer and I onto a shelf overlooking this magnificent valley. Even though the view was already unbelievable, I'm always wondering what is over the next ridge, around the next corner, up a little further, and this shot was the result of my curiosity.

As I pushed myself to damn near the top of the pass, I found these corn lilies among the flowering bear grass and instantly loved the contrast between the two. I felt that if the right colors showcased themselves, they would compliment each other wonderfully. 

As luck would have it, the last moments before sunset allowed for a little sunshine to sneak under the clouds and present a wonderful glow upon the surrounding peaks. A truly wonderful way to end one of my favorite hikes I've been on.

Sun Kissed Sinopah by Jacob-Routzahn
Sun Kissed Sinopah

After spending the first evening and night shooting around Hidden Lake, my friend and I decided to make our way towards Two Medicine Lake.  Not know where to camp, we soon found ourselves on a two track road that was leading us into the middle of no where.  Being as late as it was, we thought camping out under the stars would be a wonderful experience as well as quick and convenient.  Despite the unbelievable starlit sky, it was nothing short of awful.

Awakening to the alarm in the morning, we found ourselves covered in dew with only an hour or two of "solid" sleep under our belts.  We quickly packed our stuff up and made it to the lake.  Having checked out the weather the night before, wind speeds were suppose to be low to non-existent.  Perfect for reflections.  Fingers crossed and cameras ready, we arrived to find some of the clearest waters we had ever seen surrounded by gorgeous mountains.  Once the first light began to kiss Sinopah Mountain in the background, we knew we had made the right decision to come here.

It truly was an amazing first morning.

Dyar Falls by Jacob-Routzahn
Dyar Falls

After a very long hiatus of being a father before a photographer, I finally was able to take a vacation to Glacier National Park with a friend, Ryan White.  

With this being my first landscape in almost a year, I present this photo, a teaser of what is to come.  

Glacier is a beast I wish I could spend the rest of my life taming.  And, for seven days, Ryan and I certainly tried.  Being up before dawn for sunrise shots every morning, and up until we could see the Milky Way every night, we didn't let any opportunities slip between our fingers.  Shoot, we even met Joe Rossbach.

On this occasion, we found ourselves continually obsessing over a shot of some waterfalls taken by Ryan Dyar.  Just the area in itself was amazing and needed exploring.  So, we decided to go for a little hike.  We muddled around in the area of the shot, but decided to see what the higher elevation looked like since the Bear Grass was in full blossom.  

Just below the pass, the bear grass was everywhere.  However, there was a snow flat creating a wonderful stream running right down the middle of the valley.  With a second burst of color, I quickly made my way to another shot I had mapped out for just this occasion.  

The second burst of color was a wicked awesome "Welcome to Glacier" moment and a cherry on top to a perfect day.

My wife gave birth to our first child, a little girl named Cecelia Elizabeth Routzahn! She was 8 lbs 3 oz and 19.5 inches long. She's amazing and I can't wait to teach her how to rock climb, camp and take pictures! A pic or two soon to come.

And my apologies to everyone for my absence on here. Between working on projects at our new house, work, and the baby, I haven't had any time to take really any photos. I hope it changes in a while.

I love my new little baby girl though! She has that fresh baby smell!
