On the first night that our full group got together for our Glacier National Park photo tour, our tour leader, Jeff Clow, did what he does best: finding obscure locations that most other tours don't visit. This location was actually outside of the National Park, and is found instead in Flathead National Forest. The forest is huge, with a size of 2.4 million acres, and is home to all kind of wildlife, lakes, streams and rivers. Jeff took us to one of its lakes, Lion Lake, pictured here.
The light this particular evening was really nice and parts of the landscape were absolutely glowing. I took a particular liking to these reeds across the lake and wanted to feature them against the greens of the forest and blue of the sky. What a great start to the tour.
