Another oops moment for this image! I did not get a lot of sleep at Glacier so I was not thinking straight during sunrise shoots. I shot the night sky the night before and left my camera at ISO 1600. Always return your settings to something reasonable after you finish a shoot to avoid this problem!
Our first morning in Glacier, we decided not to do a sunrise shoot as we were out late the night before and the forecast called for cloudless skies. I tried, but my body didn’t agree and woke me up 30 minutes before sunrise. Since I was awake, I jumped in my car and got to the closest place I could before the sun came up. I did much better with this composition for the sunrise than I did at night so that is good at least. This location is just a short walk down the shore from the Rising Sun boat launch.
