A few pretty sights along the way:

Those of you who have been to Montana and know that Bozeman to Butte is something like 44 miles. With scene after scene like this gorgeous side light illuminating these horses, we didn’t make it very far very fast. Dad and I left Bozeman this morning, headed to the Oregon coast. About 10 miles out of town, the sky opened up as it has a tendancy to do in Big Sky country. We quickly got off the highway, and drove 20 miles out of our way to grab these horse shots. It’s great to be traveling with another photographer…where food, time, and destination are all distractions in the way of getting “the” image.

This shot is proof again of the lesson I have gotten so lucky off of time and again…never put your camera away until you are back at home, warm again and completely done for the day. I was shooting all afternoon and the sun had just set. I turned around from the trunk of the car and loved the contrast of the yellow streetlight balanced with the twilight sky and great montana buildings. Pulled my viewfinder to my eye, and presto, this biker glides into my frame and I click away three times. This is the resulting shot. Not tough, just paying attention and got a little lucky.
A pretty sunrise over Bridger Mountain gap. It was gorgeous, and I love the cartoonesque quality that this fence post took on. Bundled with the gentle pastel pink sky and field, it takes on a decidedly different look than what I am usually attracted to shooting. But hey, when it’s 5:30 in the morning and all you can shoot is rising sun and snow covered peaks on the horizon, the results ain’t half bad.

So..as a reminder to me, this morning I am working through older photos, and came across a few that really demonstrate how light is more important than the object itself.
