Day 254

The pelican from last week.  For such a large, ungainly looking bird, they sure look graceful in flight! (1/1500s f/8.0 ISO160 400mm -1/2 stop) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 249: An Appropriate, Lasting Monument…

…to Neil Armstrong and all of the Apollo astronauts and the people that made landing on the Moon possible.  It is big, easy to see from everywhere, and best of all in these days of deficit spending: it is FREE! (Nikon Coolpix P7100) ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 248: Sunset at Fort Missoula

I am back in MIssoula.  It is very smokey, making it hard to breathe, but also making for colorful sunsets!  Here is the Tipi burner and the steam logging locomotive. (All photos: Nikon Coolpix P7100) *** *** *** ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>
