A Look Across the Partially Melting Waters of Bow Lake to Mountains and a Glacier (Banff National Park) by Mark Stevens Via Flickr: A look to the southwest while walking around the Simpson’s Num-Ti-Jah Lodge area. The mountainsides and peaks on either side from left to right are Mount Thompson and Mount Jimmy Simpson. Bow Glacier and the Wapta Icefield are towards the image center. By keeping the exposure more to the right, I was able to capture some of the details in the overcast skies above and bring out some richer colors to the setting on an otherwise blah kind of a day.
Mickey Thompson testing the unfinished Challenger 1 at El Mirage Dry Lake, in 1958. This garage-built car eventually propelled him to break the 402 MPH record set by John Cobb, going 406.6 MPH at Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah on Sept. 9, 1960.
