Early autumn evening at Lake MacDonald in Glacier National Park (Montana, USA). It was the offseason so it felt like we had the Park to ourselves, most of the tourists having departed for warmer regions. Fall is my favorite time to visit the Park. The heat has finally cleared and the snow storms are still a month away. I can feel what it must have been like for the first outside visitors to this area.

I have been to Glacier Park many times over the years, but this is the first time that I have viewed it through the lens of a camera.

1,538 views and 60 favorites, as of 6/25/11.

  • Thank-you. It is. Sometimes I forget and take it for granted until I see peoples’ reactions to my photos.

    Oh my! I spent three days trying to find still water like this. I actually did very early in the morning before the sun rose on our last day. Your color tones are fascinating, with the soft violet sky and golden foliage pefectly mirrored in Lake McDonald’s calm waters!

  • Thank-you! It was just fortunate timing that it was a still day. It’s been windy since then and snowing in the higher elevations.

    Wonderful work, perfect lighting. I love the autumn colours and reflections. The example when having horizon in the middle of the image doesn’t hurt ;)

  • Thank-you very much!
