One of my most favorite months in Montana is the Fall time. The lighting, colors and general warm lingering evenings, imprint in my mind like nothing else. The Bitterroot is a spectacular place with mountains and streams, which never cease to amaze me as a Photographer. The activities that one can do in the fall are endless and I hope to capture every moment of this incredible place!Read More
Selway Fly Fishing
Yesterday there was a break in the rainy Bitterroot Valley weather. We awoke to sunny blue skies and slightly warmer temperatures. It was the perfect day to fly back to Moose Creek, ID to go for a short hike and try our hand at Fly Fishing on the Selway River.
The fishing was pretty good in the end. Nice small Brook Trout, all caught on stimulaters. We packed a lunch and the pup, Meeker, ran around enjoying the river and everything else she could get her mouth on. It is a pretty neat feeling to know that we where the only people around for miles, getting to enjoy the Selway Wilderness all to ourselves.
Here are some pic's from our fun adventure!!!

Storms come and go quickly in the Bitterroot Valley. I took some shots the other day of a very quick moving rain storm that came over the mountain range from Idaho and disappeared just as quick as it started. I shot the images on a Nikon D700 with a ND Fader filter and a Graduated Orange Cokin filter on the most of the images.
This is what the Valley looked like about 20 minutes before the Rain Cloud's came streaking over the Bitterroot Mt. Range. Shot taken in Stevensville, MT.
Used a Cokin Filter and a Gradated Filter because the sky was pretty bright. The rain came across the mountains very quickly.
