This is 2 exposures blended together using my advanced Photoshop tonality control and multiple exposure blending techniques. I produced a video detailing these techniques, it's available here:

Sunrise through the smoke of nearby forest fires. Glacier National Park. It was a beautiful and surreal morning on Lake McDonald.

During the last summer season I traveled all over the western US teaching photo workshops and doing art shows. The amount of forest fires all burning at the same time was staggering. I spent 8 weeks on the road, and I only saw a few days without heavy smoke. I've never seen anything like it and hope I never see it again.
