Bitterroot Fall

Bitterroot Fall

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!

Collection of this years 2016, Bitterroot Fall Colors and a couple of Red Lodge Montana Images as well!

Wisdom Summer

Wisdom Summer

I packed up my Pentax 645z and headed to Wisdom yesterday. The winds where blowing, but the light was pretty good for the most part. I unfortunately forgot my tripod at home and found myself attempting to slow down my shutter to try and capture the movement of the grass, clouds and water.  I found out quickly however, that handholding a Medium Format camera at 1/6th of a second with the mirror locked up, proved to not be the best method.

Here are some images that I took yesterday evening. Its everything from Landscapes to horses to hiking in a burn area.

Equipment used:

-Pentax 645z

-Pentax 35mm f3.5

-Pentax 80-160mm f4

My attempt at a long exposure hand held. Not so easy with a Medium format camera!

And one more attempt at hand holding 1/6th of a sec!

I put a roll of Fuji ISO 400 Slide Film into my Nikon F3 Camera and snapped some shots off the other day. The C41 film was then X-Processed at the Lab and here are some of the results.

Shooting and processing film in this manner is the direct reason why you have all of those fancy filters in your Instagram…difference is, this was the original way to get that contrasty, heavy red/green look.

A couple of the images are in Black and White, which I edited in photoshop, but the rest of the images are pretty true to the scans from my film.

Selway Fly Fishing

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!!!

Images: Nikon D800, Nikkor 14-24mm 2.8, Nikkor 24-70 2.8
