Twilight's Last Gleaming by grizzlysghost

Twilight's Last Gleaming

Lake McDonald, Glacier National Park, Montana

The "star" pattern of the sun is due to my aperture blades because I'm stopped all of the way down to f/22; bright lights do this when you stop down... just in case you wanted to know or suspected some sort of filter or something. Ok... carry on.

Very beautiful, love the colors, the wispy clouds and silhouettes of the hills.

I love doing that with flares. I got one once that took up much of the photo. It was pretty crazy. This is gorgeous, Aaron. Happy weekend. Fav!

It's the blades that do that? Always good to learn a bit of physics and a super shot as always.
