Wild Goose Island is located in the middle of St. Mary’s Lake in Glacier National Park. The lake is just off of the historic ‘Going-to-the-Sun’ road which is the main artery of one of America’s best national parks. The drive through the park on this single road is nothing short of epic – each twist and turn presents a different stunning view. I was here in September 2013 and while the weather didn’t completely cooperate it was still a trip that I’ll never forget.
For this particular photo I shot Wild Goose Island with a 10-stop ND filter which allows for less light to pass through to the camera’s sensor. As a result, you are able to leave the shutter open and capture movement in the sky and also smooth the waves of the lake.
