Judges' comments:
Feels like a fantasy image; all elements handled very well; foreground is amazing
Maker's notes:

This image was taken about an hour and a half before sunrise at Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park. I was planning on getting a picture of a star-filled sky above the lake since it was pitch black to the naked eye, but was surprised by this sunrise when I took a 15 second exposure.
