I really don’t like grey skies. They are just boring and have no definition to them. Thankfully we had some more interesting skies come in that were actually worth doing something with. Now I have spent a fare amount of time on the east side of the Bridger Mountains trying to find that right angle to get the shot down the valley. My two favorite times to photograph the valley are to no surprise fall and winter. The hillside lights up with fall color in the autumn months and as you can see the pines are just stacked with snow when that good winter storm comes through. Well despite my attempts I have still not gotten that one shot that I have been looking for. Despite what you might think it’s actually a good thing.
Every time we go out searching for that one photo we are looking to bring back something that we didn’t have before. Either it’s entirely new or an improvement on the last one. If however every time we went out and got that perfect image that we were searching for then where would the challenge be? Where would the excitement be? Not always getting that image is part of the game and fighting for it is what makes the game great.
