July 2014, we made a trip to Glacier National Park. On the first morning after we arrived I got up a 4am and drove out to this iconic location that had been on my "Bucket List" of locations I wanted to photograph. Road construction in the area prevented me from being able to drive to this location. I had to hike about a mile to get to this prime spot with a view of Wild Goose Island. Upon my arrival I was all alone except for a Loon calling just below me. If you zoom in on the high resolution view on the group of rocks jetting out into the lake at lower edge just left of center, you can see the loon's head sticking up from between the rocks. (See below.) By the time the sun started to rise, I had 5 other photographers all around me. We all worked in muffled silence as we watched and listened to the scene that the Lord painted for us that morning.

We highly recommend the Metalized Paper. This special paper does an excellent job of bringing out the detail of the photos.
