[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My last post showed some of the peaks above Swiftcurrent Lake. This one is a complete parallel that does the same with the second lake, Josephine Lake. This lake can be reached as a short hike from the Many Glacier hotel. Alternatively, you can catch a boat from in front of the Many Glacier hotel, and take a very short hike to catch the Morning Eagle to cruise across this lake.

As you can see, it was a remarkable morning. The most beautiful day I had seen in 6 years of going to the park. From here we hiked up to Grinnell Lake, which is a spectacular destination that I will post later.

PP: A noise filter, resize, frame, and unsharp mask.

Great shot of a beautiful location. I can almost sense the crisp morning air. Your exposure captures the huge range of lighting conditions very well, and you didn't overdo the polarizing that often turns the sky almost black - well done!

Hi MIke , spectacular high mountain. Perfect exposure and nice colors.
Well done and TFS

Hi Mike,Wonderful landscape shot! Excellent composition and POV, great details,sharpness and colors.TFS.Hilmi.

Hi Mike, I like the compression on the shot but I would like to have seen the mirrored reflection of the trees if possible. I wonder how this would have looked as a vertical composition. I think 50mm would have been perfect for this composition although that would have required a lens change. Sharpness and image clarity are excellent as is your exposure. Well done, see you in a few weeks.

Beautiful colours and details, wonderfull spot.
Congrats, Geert.

Una hermosa composición con 3 zonas bien demarcadas... la arboleda y su reflexión sobre el agua, las áridas paredes de los picos y un cielo intensamente azul.
Buen POV y DOF, con apropiado encuadre y presentación.
Muy buen trabajo.
Saludos... Ricardo

Beautiful composition with 3 well demarcated areas... the grove and their reflection on the water, the arid walls of the picks and an intensely blue sky.
Good POV and DOF, with appropriate framing and presentation.
Very good job.
Greetings... Ricardo
