I really like that first pic at Lake McDonald Lodge, it's wonderful! I like the glossiness of the water.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas Pete!!⛄

Nice shots Pete! That view down to the NE end of the lake never gets old and always brings me to my "happy place".
I'll be back out that way for 6-7 days near the end of May.

Happy holidays everyone!

Thanks, and wouldn't you know it! Today, neither of them would come close to me :(
I guess some days they're moody just like people. LOL! 8)

Thanks Jay. You're right. Lake McDonald's views never get old. Just better on some days than others.
And today, Christmas Day 2019 is a good example. Just a grim day and not very good for photography.
Maybe the crummy weather was why B&C were in an unfriendly mood
:)

Happy holidays everyone!

Yeah that picture was a nice surprise. It turned out better than I thought it would.

Thanks, it would have been better if it had SNOWED! It was a pretty much a "brown" Christmas for most of the Flathead Valley.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!!!! :D :mrgreen:
Those of you who are offended can go pound sand. 8)

I stopped on the way home at the boat ramp. The Garden Wall was lit up with a small patch of sunshine.
Not a "silk purse" but better than a sow's ear. 8)

Thanks for the update on Bonnie and Clyde.

I like your "better than a sow's ear" pictures, especially the second one. The blue sky and sun on the snow on the mountains of the garden wall is a great contrast to the clouds and shaded mountains in the foreground.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I look forward to 2020 Snaps Around Glacier.

The two lake photos directly above are absolutely gorgeous Pete! Either of them would make a nice print.

Have a good new year in the Park. I'm looking forward to your 2020 photos...

Thanks and don't you know!
I was out there Christmas day and B&C both snubbed me :( Neither would come near me.
I have no idea why. Maybe they're more like people than we believe--Moody? Have bad days like we do?

Thanks Bill. Both of those turned out better than I thought when I took them. The weather has been crap around here for weeks.
The lack of snow here in the valley and lower elevations is depressing me.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Same to you and Candy too :D

I look forward to 2020 Snaps Around Glacier.

I'll do my best this coming year to get some good pics. I won't be going to the park quite as much as in the past.
I need to limit spending for to pay down both some old debt as well as new pay for some recent dental work.
Gasoline is about the only expense that I can economize on...so fewer trips to the park for now :(
Barring something unexpected, I should be ok by June.

Thanks Matt!
I wish I could get out there more often.
A day in the park always beats sitting here on the sofa looking out the window 8)
As I've said here, we NEED SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!
This "brown" Christmas sucked.
Give me a shout if you get down this way

Hi Carol! :)
As always, THANKS for your compliments on my images. You give my confidence a needed boost.
There are times when I look at my work and think it's just not very good...and not worth spending the money to print it.
So I do appreciate the kind words.
Let's hope for some good snowy winter weather in 2020! I really like those cold, clear, winter days for photographs.


pete :wink:
