Montana Dreaming - Lake Sherburne, Glacier National Park, Montana

I have been looking at some old photos that have been in my Lightroom catalog from a long time ago and found this one that I shot back in 2006 while on vacation. With all of the modern cameras that you can buy today with all of the megapixels and technology, this one was shot with Nikon's very first digital SLR, the D100. Introduced in 2002, the D100 boasted an amazing (at the time) 6 megapixels. While the resulting file would not support a photo on a billboard, the quality of these old photos are still pretty good.

This photo was taken on a vacation to Glacier National Park in the Many Glacier region that is located north of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, on the east side of the park. We had come down from Banff National Park for a quick visit before returning to Calgary. The weather was quite atrocious and we arrived after a major wildfire in the area was finally extinguished, but we had a decent day when we visited Lake Sherburne. The lake is actually a reservoir that was formed when the Lake Sherburne Dam was constructed in 1921.
