Sunrise cloud movement over St Mary Lake – Glacier National Park, Montana.


I spent a sunset and two sunrises here on Wild Goose Island, and each time, the light was different. A few minutes after I took this shot, the sky colors disappeared as rain clouds blanketed the eastern sky. It would have been perfect to get this sky and the same alpenglow light that I saw a few days earlier. This is a single exposure shot with three GND filters.

We ended up hiking in the rain to a couple waterfalls later that day to finish our trip. There are still some more photos from this trip that I might post later when I find the time, but this is the last good photo that I took during my trip. If you follow my series thus far, I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed capturing them. Glacier National Park is very beautiful, and my photos don’t do it justice.
