Montana stills amazes me. Over the last five years I have been watching the weather a lot more closely to find better timing with my shooting and what fascinates me is how big the storms come through in November and December and then they seem to get smaller as far as accumulation in the valley. This past week we had a small storm come through on Friday and then Saturday it was right back to sunny and warm. Well the overnight drop in temperatures combined with the warming of the sun the next day made for a great day to be out.
A buddy of mine wanted to go fishing on the Gallatin and I went but I didn’t really fish I just walked and took pictures. Sometimes you just get that feeling where all you want to do is pick up the camera and this was that kind of day. It started off sunny sixteen but by 3pm it was back to overcast. Those few hours produced some images, all of which I was focusing on the ice flows, nevertheless it was a good day to just be out and those days are needed every now and then.
