What day was the photo taken?

August 9, 2009

Photo Description

I was sitting on the deck at Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park, Montana and loved the striking contrast of the red canoe against the gray background as the fog rolled in.

Because the lake was so smooth, I was able to take several other shots where you could not really tell the difference between the mountains and clouds from their reflections in the water.

Tips and Tricks

  • If you ever have the opportunity to go to Montana, bring a camera with a zoom lens and a wide angle. My lens was 35mm and was often not wide enough for some of the landscape shots that I hoped to capture. There is a lot of wild life there so the zoom will come in handy.
