Grinnell Point and Swiftcurrent Lake by greglief Grinnell Point and Swiftcurrent Lake by greglief

Another photo from my trip to Glacier National Park last August. One of the classic views is Grinnell Point from the east side of Swiftcurrent Lake (near the historic Many Glacier Hotel). The water was not as still as I would have preferred, but it still allowed for a decent reflection.

NOTE: When displayed at its default size, the photo may appear a bit "soft". FULL VIEW is highly recommended for better appreciation of detail.

(Nikon D90, Nikon 18-200 lens, circular polarizer, f/22, 1.3 seconds, Bogen/Manfrotto tripod)

A beautiful, serene reflection. The tiny ripples add to the welcoming view of nature at her most glorious. The image doesn't appear to be soft to me...it's just right.

Such a majestic looking mountain and the reflection although disrupted in the water's surface still makes for a stunning photo.

That must have been a great place to work. I hope that you got plenty of time off to hike and enjoy the rest of the park!

Actually, we had only one day off per week. But we made the most of it ;) Those were the best years of my life.

I'm just looking at some of your other photos. They are magnificent!

Thank you very much for your kind words about my photos. I am sorry to hear, though, that you only had one day off per week. That couldn't possibly have been enough time to fully explore Glacier NP!
