An ever-changing scene

A few days ago I posted a photo of the Clark Fork River not far below my house and it was suggested that it would be interesting to see the same scene as it changes seasons and moods, and I decided to give it a try. I found it difficult to frame exactly the same topography the second time, but was able to come pretty close.

This is the photo taken on December 5th,

Lower Clark Fork

and this one was taken today, December 10th.

Clark Fork River in winter

“What a difference a day makes…”


  1. Only 5 days and all that snow I thought the first one was rather in fall.

    I think you did a great job framing the second time, it is not easy at all to do so.

    BTW I love the first one better, the compo is really nice and the dramatic sky ads a lot to the overall mood of the picture

  2. I like the first one better, too, and my wife just loves it. Yes, there’s only 5 days separating the two, but also about 30 degrees!

    Thanks for visiting, Photography Dreamer!

  4. This particular change is rather dramatic, but the scene constantly changes. You can see why I want to spend every possible hour outdoors.

  5. Excellent job! I still think that view is breathtaking…at least it took mine.

  6. It’s a view I always like too. I can remember going down there to fish with my Dad as far back as the late 40’s and I’ve never gotten tired of it. If we have a normal amount of snow this winter though I won’t be able to update the photo during the last part of May and early June because it will be under water from the spring runoff. In fact, that piece of driftwood may get washed away and change the foreground setting.
