Day 306 in Missoula!

I was in Missoula for a couple days this week, and I saw this scene from the parking lot of the Riverside Holiday Inn Express.  The streamers of sunlight had started to fade by the time I got the camera out, but it was still a nice scene.  That is the University of Montana across […]

Day 301, 28 October 2009

A quick run down by the Missouri River yielded a few photos of waterfowl in the snow! A graceful landing.  I think this is a female cinnamon teal, because… (1/400, f8, 210mm, ISO 400, wallpaper sized!)) …it was hanging around with this cinnamon teal.  My book doesn’t show the females this dark, but the light […]

A little Fall folige…

That is all we are getting, is a little.  This is the dullest Fall colors I have seen in years.  These three photos are about the best I have found, and they look too old and washed out for the slight time they have had since they changed.  And that is with post processing.  From […]
