And painting with light on the shores of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park is wonderfully fun. Especially when shooting stars make an appearance.
Sometimes you just have to laugh and dance when you're experiencing a Missoula autumn day as beautiful as this one was.

I see beauty every day, in everyone I photograph, because true beauty comes from within.
Pictured: my beautiful, rocking-their-80s grandparents.
