Fun Friday: “Got Milk?”

While hiking Logan Pass in August, I came upon two Mountain Goat nannies, one with a kid, along the side of a mountain. They were not very active at the time, so I hung around for a little while. When one of the nannies stood up, her kid quickly moved underneath her to nurse: Photographic […]

When you are out in nature, do you often miss some interesting details in the view in front of you?¬† It’s easy to do. For some time now, I’ve been working on seeing things a bit differently … trying to identify exactly what caused me to take a double-take … looking for interesting details in […]

Below the Falls

On one of my many recent hikes in Glacier NP (Montana), I hiked to Virginia Falls. Just a very short distance below the falls, was this peaceful scene, with a single Aster wildflower plant gently blowing in the light breeze, in front of some cascades: This is a focus-stacked image, combining two separate images. One […]

Sunrise Hike at Logan Pass

During my recent visit to Glacier NP, I hiked at least one trail about every day. I typically like to start out very early in the morning, when the landscape is just becoming visible to the eye. Why? Several reasons. First, a lot less people out there, so I have nature more to myself! Second, […]

Ya Know It’s Gonna Be a Great Day …

… When You Come Across a Beautiful Valley View Like This! After 3 days of photographing on the west side of Glacier NP, it was time to move to my eastern position for the remainder of the trip. To get there, I drove the wonderful “Going-to-the-Sun Road”. Seemingly high into the clouds, it is easy […]

Hazy Lake McDonald

Today’s post features a couple more images captured from the bank of Lake McDonald, in Glacier NP. With the hazy skies, it was difficult to capture good landscapes, while at the same time, the haze gave a bit of an eerie feeling to the lake: On the righthand side of the above image is beginning […]

Fun Friday: Not in Here, BooBoo

“Hey, BooBoo, the pikanik basket’s not in here! Let me know if that pesky ranger shows up!” Those were the words I pictured as I captured this photograph during my recent trip to Glacier NP (northwest Montana). Today’s “Fun Friday” post features an adult Black Bear that was foraging in some mountainside berry bushes, in […]
