Interesting Photo of the Day: Mountain Goat Landscape

As warm days wane slowly into fall, today’s interesting photo truly captures the magic of a late summer evening in one of the world’s most picturesque parks. While the snowcapped mountains that we’re accustomed to seeing out of Glacier National Park are certainly majestic, the wildflowers and vibrant colors of summer seem like something out of a fantasy novel:

Idaho-based photographer Mikey Gribbin‘s passion for landscapes led him to this otherworldly scene. Using a Canon EOS R equipped with an 11-24mm f/4 lens, Gribbin captured this composition in two frames: one for the sky and one for the land. A little bit of sharpening, saturation, and exposure adjustments are all of the outside bits of magic that otherwise went into creating this shot.

The icing on the cake? As Gribbin was setting up his tripod just off the trail, a mountain goat wandered within five feet of the camera. Before the beast meandered away, the photographer managed to grab him perfectly posed just in front of a towering mountaintop.

Whether this composition was born out of patience, dumb luck, or a little bit of both, this is one photograph that’s hard to tear your eyes away from!
