The Mystery of Winter

Mystery of winter

December in the Coueur d’Alene Mountains of western Montana.



  1. I think I’d like to order a calendar containing a collection of your photos, if you don’t mind. You don’t even need to put the months or days on it, if that’s too much bother.

    This one is amazing.

  2. Thanks, Pinhole! This mountain was wrapped in dark clouds most of the day and I was lucky to see it for a brief period when there was an open window in the clouds. When that happens, it can be a beautiful sight. This view lasted only a few minutes. It’s kind of a strange photo, but that’s what it did look like right at noon today.

  3. Breathtaking even in this tiny square on my screen. It has been in the mid 70’s here. I needed some warm weather to help me feel like I am over the horrible cold I have had. These views you have captured are enough for me right now. They look like Christmas time ought to look.

  4. The 70s! We won’t see those temperatures again until May! I hope you’re getting over that cold: seems like the winter colds are always the worst.

  6. Thanks, Bernie. It seems like there’s always something photo-worthy going on here. The trick is to be outside enough to see it.
