As I was driving back from Helena today, I saw a Golden Eagle near Craig.  I got out to take a photo… (1/2000, f11, 275mm, ISO 400, -1/2 stop) …when I turned around, across the road was a Bald Eagle. (1/2000, f11, 275mm, ISO 400, -1/2 stop) A closer look. *** ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Northern Flicker Catchup

I left the camera up at our back door with the Sigma f8 600mm Mirror lens on a tripod over the weekend, and focused very carefully using Liveview (some Canon digital SLR’s let you use the lcd menu and playback screen on the back of the camera to compose the photo.  The downside is no […]

Day 52: A Bad Day on the Highway

Someone was having a Bad Day yesterday as I drove home from Missoula.  This is about 10-15 miles west of Simms.  The car’s front end was totally engulfed in flames, the front tires were gone (it still smelled like burning tires in my car when I got back to Great Falls) and the flames seemed […]
