St Mary Lake with a glassy reflective surface was an unusual occurance during my time in Glacier National Park. This was one of my first images captured in this park.
St Mary Lake is very beautiful and quite accessible - especially from my base lodging in St Mary. I was not far from Going to the Sun Highway, but took a short hike to position Wild Goose Island with a water-only background - to make it stand out.
Wild Goose Island is the most photographed island in Glacier National Park. I forgot to ask if it is the only island, but it is definitely easy to find.
This shot was timed so that the clouds moved off of the tip of Divide Mountain.
