Glacier National Park.
Wow. Love this picture!
Hi, thank you for the kind comment. This day was a good one, we had been watching a Grizzly Bear for over an hour and then decided to go to the lake to have something to eat, there was a high wind blowing which was rippling the water but this eased just long enough for me to get a few pictures at various locations along the shore. Don’t normally get that sort of luck. Ian.
Now, this is a reflection, Ian!
this is so beautiful… ❤
I really love the photo on the Daily Post Blog, but yours is even better than that! (:
A-MAZ-ING!! I was so distracted by the beautiful colors and the pebble detail that I hardly noticed the reflection! True talent, wonderful job!
Spectacular! Congrats, Ian!
Great landscape shot, the best reflection post I’ve seen,..
But the trick is to recognise it and seize the opportunity when it comes…. I had a good opportunity yesterday, but failed to take it,and this morning thought “why didn’t I think…” !! Loved the calmness of the shot, the clear view of the stones below the water as well as the reflections in your shot.
I had bought a polarizing filter just before we went to the USA last year and used it for most of the pictures, it was great for the water shots,clearing the reflection from the surface but in the blue skies it seemed to give patchy results which were quite difficult to rectify in Photoshop, not sure if it was me, the digital camera, the filter or the wide lens I was using, I always used a polarizing filter when I used film and never had this uneven blue sky effect.
I had a similar, take it when you see it problem. We had planned to go to to a section of Grand Teton, and passed a beautiful view with crystal clear water, I made a note to return to it the following day, the wind picked up and cloud moved in and I never got that beautiful shot I had seen the previous day. One more lost opportunity to add to others.
Our photographic lives are peppered with lost opportunities….
great shot, just beautiful
Stunning pics!! Bravo!!
Luck and photogtraphic eye 😉
Sometimes the eye sees something, lots of pictures taken and then when viewing them at a later date the comment is made “why ever did I take those pictures, what was I thinking”, so its not infallable unfortunately.
We are human photographers 🙂 But credits for this pic s I saw are valid 😉
wow.. it’s great pictures and very well taken in a good timing…can you tell us about the place? where it is?
Hi the pictures were taken at Two Medicine Lake on the East of Glacier National Park, Road to the Sun. The view is near the camper-ground. The lake is stunning and the wildlife is amazing, on our journey through to the lake we saw a Grizzly Bear which we watched for over an hour, a Moose drinking in the lake and various Goats and Sheep (still not totally sure what they were) wandering around the area.
thanks for the nice respond to my questions. I wish I could go there someday, it’s sounds a good place to take some pictures and enjoy the nature’s beauty. I am curious about what is your cameras and lens to take this picture, can you describe that? thanks anyway.
Hi, yes if you can get to the West Coast USA do so. We have been going there for the past few years, its an amazing place and the National Parks are stunning. Rent a car, book your hotels (saves time driving around looking for somewhere to stay), the people are very helpful and friendly, food is great (but not if you are watching your weight) and the driving is easy. Go for it !!!!!!!!
I have a Canon 650d with a Canon 15 – 85mm lens, most pictures are taken around the 15mm setting, the lens gives a very slight curvature of the horizon at the 15mm setting which I find pleasing. I have been shooting most of the images on jpeg but recently I have been using RAW, I am undecided at the moment which I prefer. I import the images into Photoshop for tweaking the contrast and saturation and not a lot else, most images are as produced by the camera.
Gorgeous, gorgeous. Such rich color and spaces for reflection.
Lucky or not, you nailed the theme. 🙂
Your photography is gorgeous! Will follow you back, Ian. 🙂
Thank-you for the kind comment, look forward to seeing you again. Ian
your photos are awe inspiring. Gorgeously done
Thank-you, most people say my Photography keeps me occupied and out of trouble and I am inclined to agree with them. Ian.
