Your right choice of ND filter captured both the fantastic lighting and the red flowers in the foreground in a perfect balance. Again, you've done an excellent work, Jay!

Jay congratulation on this magnificent winner. I love Glacier National Park. One of the things that I miss now that I moved to Alabama is the majestic Alaskan mountains. Thanks for sharing this wonderful scene.

This takes my breath away! It's surreal. I wish I had been there to experience it.

Thanks for making it possible for us all to at least take it in through YOUR eyes!!!

Come to my gallery and see my photo called "Speak To Me". It is similar to yours, in a small way. :)
