Big Lost River

It's been on the cold side for September. Snow on the mountains and even on the valley floors for a day or so. The leaves are just starting to turn but it's felt like late October. Elk are bugling and sand hill cranes are on their annual migration south making their pre-historic garble as they circle at great heights and barley stubble and cheat grass and even rabbitbrush have taken on their yellow hues while smoke bellows out of a two-room house chimney along a ditch somewhere in Mackay, Idaho.

Limited Edition Prints of Rising Silver Creek Trout

Excited to pick up from the framer my first limited edition prints. The three prints are each 16" x 24" with a frame size of 24 3/4" x 32". I view them as a set of three. They cost $1,200 (framed) individually or $3,000 (also framed) for the set of three. I am limiting each image to 100 prints plus an artists proof.

The images were shot this July on Silver Creek.

Livingston, Montana

A few images from a recent photo assignment in Livingston, Montana:

The Sawtooths

Smoky skies are the new norm for August. Thunderstorms have been rolling through too, compounding the surreal color cast with a muggy and palpable sky. Sometimes it smells like sweet pipe smoke. The rest of the time it's not discernible to my nose. Burning sage and bitterbrush to the south and I suppose some cheatgrass as well. Lodgepole pines are getting cremated to the north. A visual amalgamation of sorts: muted, Impressionistic, cold-blue in August, and teary-eyed.

Silver Creek Rainbow

Heat of the day. Packed SUV's leave dust contrails on their way north with float tubes plastered to the roofs. Pretty soon Silver Creek is left with those who don't know any better or those who hope the weed beds will soon be smothered in a giant blue orgy. I've banked on it plenty of times and come up empty handed. It's a bit of a roll of the dice, but when it happens and enough fish are keyed into Damselflies, it'll make for a memorable afternoon.
