Grinnell Reflection - Glacier National Park, Montana

Mount Grinnell, Many Glacier Hotel, Glacier National Park, Montana

Very slowly recovering from my recent trip to Glacier National Park and a scouting trip to the Palouse. Haven't looked at many of my photos yet, but I remembered this photo that I took on the first morning at Many Glacier Hotel. It looked great on the LCD of my Fuji but I knew better than to get too excited until I could view it on my iMac. Suffice to say, it still looked pretty good.

We had a great sunrise and Mount Grinnell was bathed in the orange light of the Golden Hour. I am a sucker for reflections shots and look for them wherever I go. Many times, if you follow me around when shooting, you will spot me lying flat on the ground to get the most of the reflection. I think that my buddy, Jeff Clow, has taken more shots of me in that position than I want. In any case, I was able to get the whole puddle filled with Grinnell's peak. I was really lucky to have found this spot as the wind was really kicking up, making the rest of Swiftcurrent Lake extremely rippled. The stones around the puddle made a terrific barrier so that the wind did not affect it.
