Lake McDonald, Stars
Glacier National Park, Montana, 2015
On a cold, clear, January night, I watched and listened as Lake McDonald froze right in front of me. The air was cold enough and I had been standing in it long enough that I left before making this photo. Just before I reached the highway, I realized what a rare opportunity I might be missing to photograph the lake in winter with a clear sky and calm wind. So, I turned around and made this photo a few minutes later. Photo © copyright by Greg Owens.
