Glacier National Park is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in the United States. I never want my photographs to say, "I was here". Instead, I want them to communicate to the person viewing the image that "You need to be here!"
On this day at Glacier, it was a very cloudy day and a rainstorm had just come through the park. It stopped raining just before sunset, leaving me an opportunity to capture the colors of the setting sun reflecting through the beautiful clouds hovering over and hugging the mountain range.
I took this picture at Saint Mary Lake boat dock, just to the east of the Wild Goose Island overlook off of Going the Sun Road. I used a 10-stop Neutral Density Filter to give the lake a really silky and smooth look.
