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.
Black-backed Woodpecker - Picoides arcticus
Black-backed Woodpecker - While going through some older photos I found this one from 10/2010. Taken near Gash Peak in the Bitterroot Mountains in a 2006 fire/burned area at about 6,000 feet elevation. It is on a charred Ponderosa Pine. This species is a "species of concern." Not many of these birds are seen. What a beautiful bird.Read More
