Photo of the day (11.10.08)

This is a shot you expect to see at the beginning or the end of a great film. Taken by fellow Gadling contributor Anna Brones, the picture is of Lake Mcdonald in Glacier National Park, Montana. It’s incredible how you can see a crystal clear reflection of the mountains in the lake.

I particularly like this picture because it transmits the calm and serenity of the place, you can feel it though this image without having been there. I imagine sunset or sunrise at this spot would be spectacular. When I travel, I always look out for such spots. I can see myself sitting on the edge of this ramp with my feet dangling in the water, reflecting, contemplating, or just being. Sigh.

Thanks for the photo, Anna!
