Think It Will Snow?

Think It Will Snow?

Think It Will Snow?  Just after first light in Hyalite Canyon a few years ago, we were trying to capture a few images.  We drove up the canyon road and stopped about a third of the way up the mountain; just as the rain was turning into snow.  This image was captured with about half rain and half snow falling.  The snow flakes were huge and it was starting to accumulate.  Notice how a shutter speed of 1/60 blurred the snow and rain just enough.

Young Bighorn Sheep

Young Bighorn Sheep are called lambs, but this guy seemed too big to be called a lamb.  He was a very curious sort.  After I had positioned myself out on a cliff to capture a different image, he started to follow me.  He blocked my way back off the cliff for about a half hour.  He just stood there.  The cliff was a couple hundred feet down on all sides so I had to wait and enjoy the view of sunrise over there Badlands.  Finally, he moved on.
