St. Joseph’s Catholic Missionary Church

I have not made it out with the camera in a few months, but took a drive Saturday afternoon before the snow hit. The light was come and go, but I managed to grab a bit of the evening light before the cold front moved in and turned everything gray…

Milk Way

One of the great things about living in Helena is you don’t have to travel more than 15 minutes out of town to get some dark skies. No luck on the northern lights this weekend, but it’s always nice to be out under the stars.

On the Road

It has been a busy spring! This month has seen me on the road a lot and I am finally getting down to editing some photos. Western Montana has had a ton of rain the last few weeks, and I’m hoping to get out and catch some of the greenery and the wildflowers.

Raynesford

I spent the weekend up near Raynesford helping out some friends with branding preparations. Central Montana has some gorgeous country, I would love to spend more time up here…

Easter in Big Sky Country

I spent a few days in eastern Montana on the in-laws’ property near Lindsay over the Easter weekend. Gotta love Big Sky country.
