The Granite Cleaves

I'll be going back to Montana towards the end of the month, so I decided to process this shot from Glacier National Park.

 

I took my wife and son down to the edge of the lake, and there were these giant granite blocks on the perimeter. The regular freezes and thaws around the lake created these right-angle cuts. It was nice to have them there with me... they got to hear me drone on and on about rocks and whatnot. I used to have a double-major in Geophysics and Computer Science, so I know the sorts of things about rocks that only come in handy when you have a captive audience like a family stuck on one while you are taking photos.

 

I ended up dropping the Geophysics part of the double-major after an ideological fight with a professor. That's a longer story.
