  4. Beautiful sky. I hope those clouds dropped some much needed rain on Montanna.

    • This was the last of a weather front that has been here for several days and we did get some rain from it. We are still far below our yearly average though. We get only about 15 inches a year here and we are nearly 4 inches short this year so far.

    • The approach of night does change the mood of the clouds, doesn’t it.

  10. Wow, that’s glorious! I can almost feel the chill of the early autumn, though.

    Comment by Jo Woolf — September 9, 2013 @ 9:20 am

    • Yes, there is a touch of autumn in the air now.

  11. One word – GORGEOUS!

    Comment by Mama's Empty Nest — September 9, 2013 @ 3:28 pm

    Comment by WildBill — September 9, 2013 @ 3:46 pm

      Comment by montucky — September 9, 2013 @ 4:43 pm

  16. Hi Montucky, I love the moody peacefulness of your picture of the river landscape and the sky. Have a fabulous day tomorrow!

    Comment by wildlifewatcher — September 9, 2013 @ 5:47 pm

    • Thank you! I hope you will have a great day too!

  17. Showy and dramatic sunsets have their place, but I do love nights that come with these bits of color in the clouds. Are falling nights like this mostly silent, or do you, also, have certain birds and insects that begin to make their presence known once the sun is down?

    Comment by shoreacres — September 9, 2013 @ 8:40 pm

    • Usually it’s very quiet except for coyotes and an occasional owl, but this time of year our nights are very noisy with all of the frogs and insects that are at the crescendo of their annual cycle, hurrying to get everything done before winter. I really enjoy the sounds. I spent last night on a ridge at 6000 feet and as the last of the light faded the elk were bugling down below me. And this morning on the trail about an hour after daybreak I got to listen to the howls of a wolf pack not far away. That was a treat!

  18. Wow – this is so beautiful and serene! Lovely evening coming on.

    Comment by Julie — September 10, 2013 @ 3:05 pm

    • Yes, serene it was. I love the evenings away from the cities!

      Comment by montucky — September 10, 2013 @ 9:47 pm

      • I too treasure getting away out in the wilderness, which is not often done … large parks do it for me as well … feeding squirrels! I love the tone of the evening in this photo, by the water!

        Comment by Julie — September 12, 2013 @ 6:07 pm

        • just spent another day in a wilderness setting where I didn’t see another person during the time I was there. I think we all need that once in awhile.

          Comment by montucky — September 12, 2013 @ 7:49 pm

  19. Stunning riverscape, cloudscape, mountainscape!

    Comment by Candace — September 11, 2013 @ 2:26 pm

    • Thanks. That is a favorite place for me, about a half mile down river so I can walk there.

      Comment by montucky — September 11, 2013 @ 10:30 pm

  23. Absolutely spectacular, a scene straight out of Mordor!

    Comment by Finn Holding — September 16, 2013 @ 1:59 pm
