One of the realities of photography is that you can’t get the same image every place you go. There are certain regions that you have to go to in order to find those unique area based images. Montana is one of those out west states that has that already built up reputation as being Old Western Cowboy. For the most part this is actually quite accurate. But it does tend to yield certain images more often than others.
While I was out driving this weekend, I decided to ignore my past experience and knowledge and just followed the light up the road to see where it would take me. I saw these clouds over the Crazy Mountains and I said to myself, “hmm those are nice.” So I drove up the road, not knowing where it would end, and along the way I found this old wagon. It had been placed there but with the background available I couldn’t resist. This is one of those objects that screams “out west” to me and when you have great skies you know you have to do something with them.
