Wild Goose Island Lake - Glacier National Park, Montana - Landscape Photography - John Dukes Photography

John Dukes Photography John Dukes Photography

This landscape photo I captured at Glacier National Park is of Wild Goose Island, located just west of Saint Mary. This is the spot on the Going-to-the-Sun Road which is one of the most photographed locations in the entire park and we returned several times to this location. Many times, it was very windy and cold and the water was very choppy, not to mention smoky from all the fires out west, but on this day, after a rainstorm went through the area, and the yellows and golds of the setting sun appeared through the clouds, I thought it made a very interesting photograph. No two days look the same from this place. Each day, it looks like a different scene, and each time it was so beautiful. I used a 10-stop neutral density filter to show the movement in the clouds and to make the water appear more smooth. Hope that you enjoy it!
