  5. Stunning. I love the bit of blue sky over the mountain, then the dark cloud cover covering the rest of the photo.

    • Thanks kateri. That day was cloudy and dark, but for just a few minutes a little sun hit that high ridge and I was lucky enough to see it.

  6. Sir your blog is wonderful. Your photos of the back country and the plant and animal life in it are beautiful. I will be an avid reader of your blog for some time to come.

    • Thank you, Jim! I have been greatly enjoying yours as well! There is still a lot of beautiful natural country left here in Montana and I spend as much time in the back country as possible and always try to bring back photos of it.

  9. I love how the snow looks like it stuck to everything. Is this a view you can see from home?

    • This photo was taken while I was on a walk a couple miles from my home. It is part of the high country that can be seen from the valley when the clouds permit.

    • That ridge was about eight miles away and the photo was taken at 300mm. That area was the only sunlit place anywhere around that day.

  12. Beautiful – I’ve so enjoyed seeing our mountains covered with white against the blue sky. It’s got to be one of my most favorite things about living in this area…

  15. If that wouldn’t get one in the “spirit” I don’t know what would! Do you have more snow this year than last or are you shooting at higher levels?

    • That ridge is pretty high, but we have had quite a bit of snow so far this year; much more than any of the last several and it looks like there will be much more to come. I’m very happy about that: my snow blower is working great and my snow shoes are all ready to go! It is starting to feel like a real old fashioned Christmas season this year!

    I had to admire Your photo for long time, because is so fantastic. I love those “combined” colors, white, blue and black-grey clouds. Thank You showing it.
