Apgar Village is the first stop-off past the western entrance to Glacier National Park. It has lodging, a very small grocery store, various eateries and souvenir shops, and a pebbly beach along the southern shore of Lake McDonald. This is a great area for the first-time visitor to see what awaits them as they drive deeper into the park, along Going-To-The-Sun Road. Even though it was mid-day when this shot was taken (usually not the best time for photos), I was pleased with the results, thanks to the interesting clouds and the polarizer filter I used to get rid of water reflection.

Definitely make sure you have a tripod and polarizing filter for your camera, to reduce camera shake and to get rid of most of the reflections from the lake water. And watch your step along the rocky / pebbly lakeshore.

Very nice photo. I like the diagonal lines that are created by the clouds and boats and the well-saturated colors with plenty of contrast. Well done!
