Glacier National Park, Montana

When you finally reach the high point of the hike up to the Hidden Lake overlook, you are greeted by two small ponds with beautiful mountains in the background.

After shooting Hidden Lake at sunset, we stopped by these ponds on the way back because the huge moon was in a perfect position.  I was pretty tired at this point and had been shooting nonstop for hours so I was kind of lazy with my settings, but I like the way it turned out.  It is two exposures (one for the moon and one for the rest) that I blended in Photoshop.  This is my first full moon landscape I think I have ever done and I was pretty happy with the results, but I feel like the exposure on the moon is just a little off.
