Montana Sky

dec-sno-39-EditShot tonight just north of Billings, MT.


I’ve been a bad blogger!

It’s been kind of crazy lately and I haven’t made a post in weeks!  Here are some of the things I’ve been working on.











I promise it won’t be weeks until my next post!

A Friday Afternoon Drive

Friday was my birthday, so I had a chance to leave work a little earlier and take a drive with my  faithful assistant Max!  It had been a nice day, but it was starting to cloud up and I thought the sky would be perfect for a shot I have been trying to get for months, so Max And I set off to photograph St Olaf church near Red Lodge.  Here are some of the images we captured.

Good Morning Billings, Montana

I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been out-of-town working on a catalog shoot for Montana Silversmiths.  I took this yesterday morning here in Billings, it was a pretty amazing sky!


I’ve been pretty busy lately and haven’t had  a chance to post anything, so I thought I’d post a shot I took last night while Max & I were being eaten by mosquitos.

Wanna be storm chaser!

I went out with Max last night in hopes of getting some cool shots of Mother Natures light show.  I never got the great lighting bolt shot, but managed a few interesting shots,  It was a full moon and the with long exposure, the moon really lit the clouds in the foreground, the little lighting I did capture lit up the background.

8.0 sec @ f4.0, ISO 400, 35mm (16-35mm f/2.8)

11 sec. @ f /4.0, ISO 400, 35mm (16-35mm f/ 2.8)

15 sec. f / 4.0, ISO 400 35mm


This was taken in the opposite direction of the storm at about 10 o'clock at night, that's how bright the moon was. This is a 10 second exposure and that's a car driving by on the left.

A Late Afternoon in Nye, MT

I had a lot of work to do yesterday so I didn’t hit the road until almost 5pm.  Not having a real plan,  just wanting to get out of the house Max & I headed towards the Beartooth mountains.  While driving I remembered a friend told me I should to go to Nye some day, so… Nye it was!  We drove to Custer National Forest just outside of Nye and took some shots of the raging Stillwater River and on our way back during the “golden hour”, some of the great scenery outside of Nye.  I’m happy with the results, considering how the day started with me breaking my wide-angle lens before I took my first shot!

A Saturday Drive

Max and I took a drive down to Sheridan, Wyoming yesterday to visit some friends.  We took the back roads all the way down and had fun finding things you just don’t see taking the highway.   Here are a few of the photos I took during the day’s trip.

Reed Point MT, “Sheep Drive Capital of the World”

I headed west today and stopped in Reed Point, population 96.  Reed Point claims to be the “Sheep Drive Capital of the World” and if you don’t believe it, stop by in September and they will prove it!  I stopped  because from the Interstate I could see two grain elevators and I really like photographing them.  There was quite a bit more to photograph in a one block radius, and I managed to capture a few different looks, including a Rusted Relic!

Comanche, MT

It was an ugly morning in Montana yesterday, but the afternoon wasn’t too bad at all.  Max and I headed out for a drive late in the afternoon an ended up in Comanche, MT.  It’s not really a town, not sure if it ever was, I think it was more of a train stop for the grain silos that used to be there.  Here are a few shots from our visit.

This was taken just north of Comanche, it's a panoramic using 5 vertical images


This is a HDR photo using 3 images one stop apart


This is my favorite shot of the day!
