Thanks for visiting my SmugMug Photo site. Please leave comments! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and visit my website at www.aMontanaView.com and Facebook aMontanaView on Facebook About me: I live south of Missoula, Montana on the west side of the Bitterroot valley. Many of my photos are taken here in western Montana, but also around the world. I love being outdoors. I hike, bike, fish, hunt, ski and ALWAYS take photos. As much time as I spend outdoors, one needs to eat. You might see photos of food on these treks as I explore the sights, flora and fauna. I use a Canon 7D and 5D Mark III (with a few lenses and tripods) and shoot in RAW. I process my photos into JPG with Adobe Lightroom with as few adjustments as possible.
2011 May dandelions and tumbleweed, kids delight
Carter lives north of Kalispell in a rural area and this is the field behind his house. Lillian, his cousin, comes to visit often. Today they were taking advantage of the recent prolific crop of dandelions and also the tumbleweed on the property. What fun it is to explore and play outside. I started with a slight zoom of the lens, but came in closer to capture more character of their faces. What the zoom misses is how much of the field they covered! So glad we kept a close eye on them, they could have been in the next county soon as fast as they covered the ground. So entertaining to watch these sweet kids.Read More
