Fall has arrived at Glacier National Park, and it’s stunning. Crushing clouds and rain greeted Nate Luebbe at Glacier, but as he crested Logan Pass he was treated to one of the most spectacular alpenglow sunsets we’ve seen. “The sun shot golden fingers between jagged peaks and illuminated the clouds from below, and I couldn’t help but admire the timing. Montana was welcoming me home.” Photo courtesy of Nate Luebbe.
This clip takes you to the northern part of Glacier National Park, where the arrival of trains brought the first big pulse of visitors to parks like these a century ago. Lodges in these parks often date back to that era. The view of Running Eagle Falls in the latter half of this clip is amazing.
70 days. 2 countries. 23 states. 12,000 miles. “Moments” is a creative vision captured by a California couple, Justin and Cady Majeczky, as they traveled across North America accompanied by their two canine companions, Siberian Huskies named Nico and Taj. Destinations included Antelope Canyon, Banff, Yellowstone, Bryce Canyon, Glacier, Hamilton Pool, Burning Man, and many stops in between. Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.
Views Along a Hiking Trail (Glacier National Park) by Mark Stevens Via Flickr: Views Along a Hiking Trail. What I wanted to capture was the vista like setting of the mountains and St Mary Lake.
This was another of those image rotations I have on my Mac desktop from past trips during a hike to St Mary Falls in Glacier National Park and another where I decided to see what I could do with some post-processing knowledge I have with Capture NX2 and Color Efex Pro. With some adjustments with adjustments to exposure to bring back some lost highlights, some use of color control points and a Low Key and Polarizing filter, I was able to bring this out as a final image…and definitely a place I really need to visit again one year soon!
