Swiftcurrent Sunrise, Glacier National Park, Montana
(Click image to enlarge)
Viewed over rocks covered in orange lichen, the peaks of Grinnell Point and Mount Wilbur glow in the first rays of the sun on the opposite side of Swiftcurrent Lake. Ferocious winds coupled with below freezing temperatures accompanied this dramatic sunrise, making for numb fingers on an autumn morning.
