a Boy & a Dog A boy and a dog almost always have a special bond even if the dog is not necessarily the boy’s dog.
Rabbit Rock is located North of Adams WI in Adams County just off W-13. It’s a small area; still, worth a stop any time of year.
Storm over the Badlands While discovering the back roads, that’s gravel roads, southwest of Badlands NP, I captured this image on a quick stop; making a simple click. Why the PCE lens? Because, it was the lens on the camera at the time. Although it’s not really needed for this image, it was a new lens to me at the time and like many photogs, I over used the lens.
Yellowstone Sunset Winter in Lamar Valley makes for a cold, yet beautiful day for wolf watching. More than any time of year, winter in Yellowstone makes me feel the remoteness, the wildness of raw winter nature. It’s probably my favorite time of year to visit our nation’s first national park. Although a color image might look a bit more natural, B&W feels like nature’s cold.
Nevada City Railroad This image captures the backside view of the Nevada City railroad station and a turn of the century train. The old mining camp of Nevada City started when gold was discovered nearby in 1863. Nevada City was comprised mostly of miners working several nearby mining districts. In the beginning, the mining district was part of he Idaho Territory. In fact, until neighboring Virginia City became the Montana territorial capitol in 1865, there was no law except for the miner’s court. Checkout Nevada City for more information on this fascinating Montana ghost town.
Oxbow Bend Back View Sometimes, when you turn around to see what landscape might be there, it’s a pleasant surprise. This view at Oxbow Bend, away from the mountains, creates a bit different mood. Of course, without the nice sky, this image would be flat. The sky makes all the difference.
Oxbow Bend at Grand Teton NP The Grand Tetons always appear magnificent whether in color or B&W. Oxbow Bend was once reputed to be the most photographed landscape in the country. Maybe, it still is. Dawn at Oxbow Bend is always an emotional experience rain or shine. Always, remember to turn around to see what is to your back when focusing on a great image.
Ranch Road Big country has big ranches with long gravel roads that can distort perspective. Just how far are those mountains in the distance?
