Moon over Mount Gould by Mark Stevens

During a late afternoon walk around Swiftcurrent Lake. With the trees around and mountains below, it seemed to just frame the moon making its way across the skies.

The Same, but Different by Kevin Benedict Photography The upper reaches of Mount Gould, Grinnell Point and Mount Wilbur alight with alpenglow and reflect in the still waters near the rocky shore of Swiftcurrent Lake, Many Glacier, Glacier National Park, Montana.

This is the same scene as an earlier post from my visit last fall to Many Glacier, but taken some minutes earlier. When recently going back through my old photos from this favorite place, I started liking this earlier version more and more so I though I would share. I really like the bright orange-red alpenglow just having reached the highest parts of the mountains while cool colors dominate the rest of the scene, and to me the little wisp of dawn fog arcing up in front of Grinnell Point in the center of the frame adds a nice subtle touch.
