After witnessing a beautiful sunrise we drove into the Many Glacier area and stopped by Swiftcurrent Lake. There were still clouds in the area and the wind died down at random periods of time. I knew that I wanted to take advantage of the calm lake and the moving clouds so I set my camera for a long exposure and waited to see what the cloud movement looked like. Although I photographed this both wide and more telephoto, I ultimately liked the symmetry of focusing on Mt. Wilbur between Mt. Gould and Swiftcurrent Mountain.
There was a workshop shooting along the beach to my right but I didn't like the symmetry from that spot, and I didn't want to hang out near the "Frame Bang". I moved to my left to get a better view and to stay away from the crowd.
For those that are picky: 2 exposure blend: 1 for the sky and 1 for the frozen water. Yes, I'm not about to get cloud movement (from wind) and a still lake (from no wind) in the same shot.
