Photo of Lake McDonald in Glacier N.P.

I photographed the image below of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park in August of 2021. My family and I drove the Going-to-the-Sun Road from St. Mary, Montana to West Glacier, Montana. Glacier National Park was the last stop for us on a two-week road trip.

With it being summertime, there was not much snow in the mountains in the background of this photo, but it was still a beautiful site to see. Lake McDonald is one of the last sites to see at the end of the Going-to-the-Sun Road before you get to West Glacier. This lake is 10 miles long and nearly 500 feet deep. Although I didn’t see any wildlife while at the lake, it is said that many flourishes in the valley of Lake McDonald. Common wildlife animals include bighorn sheep, mountain goats, elk, black bears, and deer.

This Lake McDonald photo was photographed with these camera settings:

  • Camera Body: Canon EOS 6D Mark II
  • Shutter Speed: 1/800 seconds
  • Lens Aperature: f/9
  • Focal Length: 24 mm
  • ISO: 250
  • Image Quality: RAW
