We headed to Waterton National Park in early July with hopes of photographing wild flowers. As we drove south, the skies got darker and rain began to fall. And then, it rained heavily all night, leaving us to wonder what the next day would be like.
Under heavy overcast skies in the morning, we headed into the Park. To our surprise, the clouds began to break up. The early morning light streamed through onto the soggy landscape. We quickly searched for some wild flowers, not knowing how long the sun would stay out.
On the bluffs near the Park’s administrative centre, we each grabbed a camera and tripod, and ventured into wet knee-high grass and bushes. While the wild flowers were not yet at their peak, everything was covered in water drops from the overnight rain. The water drops sparkled in the sun.

What you get to see, when you’re at the right place at the right time, and if you happen to be looking in the right direction, can be simply stunning and amazing.
