Glacier National Park, Montana

After we finished shooting the sunset at Hidden Lake and a couple short stops, a small group of us headed over to Swiftcurrent Lake to shoot light trails at this location a couple of the guys had scouted out during the day.  Four of us climbed up this steep mountain about midnight and shot for an hour or so while Jim Harmer drove his car up and down the stretch of road in front of us.

I became satisfied with what I had a little too early and stopped shooting.  When it got to processing, I didn’t quite have enough images to get the full light trail across the road.  I tried manually extending it, but wasn’t happy with the results.  This image is just two images blended in Photoshop.
