Re: Mountain goats

Well that was fun looking at the goat photos and also Pete's videos!
To change things up a bit, I've got a 1 minute video of bears I saw last year in Many Glacier. These were all on the same day. And right next to the road in MG. I obviously used a long lens.

Mountain goats

Several years ago I took a short video of some mountain goats while I was on the way down to Hidden Lake. I wondered if anyone knows what these goats are doing. Sorting out dominance? Maybe? Any other ideas? By the way I was not as close to these goats as it appears in the video as I used a long len...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Your photographs make me feel happy! I thought your photo of Logan Pass was exceptional. Wonderful colors! I also really like your wild flower photos....I took one from what looked like just about the same place on the meadow looking back at Reynolds Mt a few years ago. And it still is one of my fav...

Re: Latest 2020 Season Opening News

I am sorry to hear about the way people are acting in the Park. But not surprised. As more people visit the Park every year, their activities (stomping wildflowers, not staying where they should, and parking where ever they want, to name a few) seem to get worse. And with a large portion of GNP not ...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Glad you printed that photo. It is wonderful! Worthy of the wall space in your house and also would be great in a coffee table book of Glacier NP. So glad you are sharing your photos!

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

That is enough to scare the crap out of anyone! Certainly the goats and obviously the person making the video.
Glad you were there earlier and missed that.

You got some great pictures of the bighorns! I particularly like the second and third pictures because of the backgrounds behind them. Thanks for sharing!

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Enjoyed seeing the goat shots! He certainly seemed to be comfortable around people. Also liked seeing the scenery where you were. A couple of years ago I got a little video at the beginning of the Highline Trail. It features some goats playing and running around. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

I have never seen so many people at avalanche lake! You have to understand that people who have dogs sometimes think the rules don't apply to their "sainted" dog. The rules are for other people. Glad you spoke to them.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

That 2nd image has an almost 3 dimensional quality to it. Beautiful! Thanks for the info on your software for panos. I actually have Photoshop Elements. That's what I had on my old computer. New computer wouldn't accept old version so got new version of PE. A lot of changes in the new software. I ne...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

I understand what you are talking about when you mention the challenges of stitching together photos to make panos. At one time I carried my Nikon DSLR with me to get "the best photos". However, I then noticed that this camera body with associated lenses was just getting to be heavier than I wanted ...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

These are fantastic! This is what Glacier National Park is all about....beautiful breathtaking alpine scenery without the crowds of people. I particularly like the 4th photo. The flowers in the foreground set it off nicely.

Re: Thinking Out Loud for 2020

Our trip had similar problems. Flight changed from 2 layovers to 4 layovers and one of the flights was scheduled to leave before we even arrived at that airport. Impossible schedule. We got our money back. In addition to our lodging which was on the east side of Glacier and isn't open...they cancell...
