A storm rolls in over beautiful Lake McDonald, in the spectacular mountains of Montana’s Glacier National Park (USA). This view of Lake MacDonald is very beautiful, and somewhat resembles the landscapes from Lord of the Rings. In fact, when I first watched The Fellowship of the Ring, I thought they had filmed it here in Glacier Park, since they film so many movies there. (What Dreams May Come, Beethoven’s 2nd etc.)
I love taking photos in Glacier Park. There is so much to photograph there, it’s like a photographer’s dream. That’s why I bought a year’s pass to the park. These mountains in this photo are nothing compared to what the park has to offer. I will be uploading some sharper and more rugged peaks soon.
