The majestic Bearhat Mountain and Hidden Lake are kissed by the setting sun in Glacier National Park. 
The ethereal 'halo' in the sky was caused by sunlight refracting through high clouds and smoke from the distant How Ridge Fire of 2018.
In a strange way, the scene demonstrates the remarkable beauty and sheer devastation that can occur simultaneously in nature.

Nikon D850, Nikkor 24-70 f2.8 @35mm, f11, ISO 64, 1/8 second. RRS and Novoflex multi-row panorama rig. Four vertical images stitched.

Amazing lighting, Dean! A gorgeous setting and I love the mood and feeling of depth created with the smoke!

Thank you Ron! It was sad to see the fire but in a strange way, it added to the atmosphere with it’s own type of beauty.

There is so much to enjoy in this stunning scene and it needs to be seen at a much larger size to fully appreciate everything it contains! The play of light on the landscape is quite magical!

Thank you Carol! I was so lucky to have this view to myself back in 2018. It pays to explore during the week for greater solitude around the many sights in this wonderful park.
