Amazing colors, this is a spot I would stake out for golden light. I still like it though, great job!

Very nice, Mike. I've never been there in the fall.

Thanks Gixxer. By the way, that's the road on the left on the cliff. You can see it cutting a line into the center of the image. This 17mm shot on a 1.6x crop body really shrinks the granduer of the place, which is why I'm notn big fan of UWA. It looks much different than that in person.

Look at those amazing colors! You were so lucky to be there in Fall. Isn't it one of the most breathtaking places? And driving on the Going to the Sun Road can't be compared to anything else.

Do you have more from that series?

ps.
I didn't want to spam your thread so If you'd be interested in seeing my best GNP shots:

Thx! I do have a few more from that series. I should PP them and post a few. Glacier really is an amazing place. I still haven't figured out if I prefer summer there or fall. I like how bright green everything is in July.

Awesome, you can really feel the depth of the scene. Must have been incredible to witness in person.

That's the conflict of someone who likes to shoot both wildlife and landscape. I wanted to get up to the top of the pass for any possible mountain goats, bighorns or bears while there was still light.

Beautiful shot. Looks like a great time to go.
