Early morning sun turns the rising mist gold on Bowman Lake in Glacier National Park, Montana.<br />

Photography Tip:  Shooting directly into the sun is generally considered to be a photographic no no.  Heavily backlight shots are usually full of flare, lens aberration, and distracting hot spots.  All of these visual flaws often ruin a strong image. <br />
<br />
Like all rules in art though these same flaws often give backlit images a unique beauty.  When it is done right, backlit photos tell a story of a wonderful early morning or sunlit afternoon. This style of lighting creates a warm dreamy mood in landscape photography.<br />
