Bighorn Canyon

My brother and I took off from his cabin in MT on the 29th and didn't really see much.  It was raining a lot.  We got to Lovell, WI and stayed in a flee bag hotel.  Woke up early the next day, the 30th, and drove to Bighorn Canyon which is back in MT.  These are my five best photos of the canyon.

Faust Street Bridge

I got back to my son's place in New Braunfels November 2nd but then got COVID for I've been mending the past few weeks. I have lots to share with the trip back south but for now, this is a project that I've sorta worked on the past few days. Hope you enjoy it.

Moose, Stars, and Geese

Sep. 22

Almost every morning is spectacular here. This is an HDR image from this morning.




Sep. 20

This is 265 frames of a moonrise. Each frame is a HDR merge of three images taken at f-stop offsets of -1, 0, and -1. Live and learn. There are several things I would do different but it is still neat to watch

Sep. 19

We've been cleaning the garage and other chores before winter comes.  But today I took some time and capture some geese arguing amongst themselves.  I find this really cute.  No great art here but it's fun to me.



We also saw a moose nearby:

National Bison Range

We started off from my brother's place near Kila, MT, went and had breakfast at Sykes Diner:


We took the path towards Hot Springs by turning right at Elmo, MT.  Just a little ways outside we found a flock of Big Horn Sheep:


The National Bison Range was a bit of a disappointment.  We saw a few bison up close but the herd was far off and only seemed to be a few dozen.


We also saw a few deer and some coyotes.  I guess the biggest plus was some of the wide open panoramas that we saw:


Here is our track for the day:

October 4 through Oct 8 in Kila, MT


Went for a stroll down the dirt road my brother lives on.  At first, I thought it was due to a fire but upon closer inspection, the tress have a type of parasite on them:


It seems to be some variety of Bryoria.  And, I found another parasite that looked interesting:


So I cracked out all my gear


and took this 2X macro (stack of 22 images)


We took a trip to Libby the next day (I think it was Thursday) and saw where they have an International chainsaw carving contest each year.  Here are a few samples:








And to finish up today's entry, is this little video I did yesterday:

I hope all is well with you and yours.

God bless

Made it to Kila, MT

We stopped for a bathroom break in Kalispell, MT and I grabbed a quick shot:



We made it to my brother’s house on Lake Rogers last night about 8 p.m.  We had a quick bite to eat and went to bed.  I woke up to this:


Lake Rogers pre-dawn with moon

We spent the day unloaded.  I tested out my MOFI AT&T “Hot Spot”.  It has good reception but the bandwidth is pretty bad.  Not sure what the deal is.

Woke up from a nap and my brother was feeding the deer
