Swiftcurrent Creek Sunrise, Glacier NP
This location along Swiftcurrent Creek is just downstream (east) of the bridge to the Lodge at Swiftcurrent Lake. The low cut in the mountains at this location allows sight of the early AM sky lighting up.
Shooting sunrises is often best done before the sun actually rises. After sunrise, turn to the side and even directly away from the sun. Vice versa at sunset.
This is an HDR image. One exposure was used for the bright sky and another longer exposure was used to pull detail out of the foreground shadows - and to add motion blur to the water.
