It always makes me nervous when its October and it feels like the beginning of September. I don’t know if that is because I spent all of September inside on the computer working or if it’s just going to be one of those years. Usually when we get nice weather like this it means that one big dump is coming. It’s just the way Montana is. However, this is a goofy year and a lot of the locals are split on what winter will be like. The Farmers Almanac says that this is going to be one of the coldest winters we’ve ever had but the weather service says the exact opposite. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out but until then the fall color is still around due to the warm temperatures.
Now when I went out hunting I wasn’t just watching everyone else, I was watching the scenary. The landscape was beautiful on the ranch we were on and I took full advantage of it! With the D4 and 24-70 AF-S it was real siple enjoyable shooting with simple colorful subjects in the morning light. These Cottonwoods naturally caught my eye. We even had clouds that day!
Then as we walked toward the back half of the ranch the Mustard Grass was alive in a sea of gold that when paired with the fall color Cottonwoods and blue sky, made you want to just lie down and enjoy the day.
