Sashikanth Chintia contributed this photo of a sunset at Glacier National Park, in the U.S. state of Montana on the Canadian border. He wrote:

We wanted to go to Grinnell Lake and shoot a time-lapse. Weather was not co-operative. After hiking 2 1/2 miles, we got rained out and we had to return back. When we hiked back we were offered with a beautiful sunset.

By the way, Glacier National Park encompasses over 1 million acres (4,000 square kilometers) and includes parts of two mountain ranges. The park contains a dozen large lakes, 700 smaller ones and 200 waterfalls. And glaciers? In 1850, the area now comprising the national park had 150 glaciers. There are 25 active glaciers remaining in the park today.
