Sunset at Swiftcurrent Lake #2


Glacier National Park, Montana

I broke out my Luzid ND1000 ten-stop neutral density filter for this one.  I wanted to ensure maximum sharpness with the foreground, but didn’t want to do traditional focus stacking on this since everything beyond the foreground would only need one focus point.  So, I decided to do a two image panorama, where the bottom image focused on the foreground and the top image focused on the mountains.  With a 70 second exposure, the lake didn’t matter because it was going to be a blur anyway.
