Missing the Mountaintops / Lofty Goals

MT Snowcovered Mtns_FINAL_Fix 3Mountaintops Reflected, West Yellowstone, MT 2010

With all the News reports of snow around the country, I miss the endless photographic opportunities that comes with it, along with the all the chaos.

On this particular day, in a place where snow is a fabric of the landscape much of the year, I made my first and only, unsuccessful attempt at flyfishing in a Yellowstone river. When I finally realized there would be no fish this day, I looked up to see the remaining light highlighting what looked like the clouds reflecting the mountaintops below them. I quickly exchanged my fishing gear for my camera gear to capture the scene before the light was gone. Using the almost sihlouetted row of Evergreens as a foreground element, this image was the one good thing I caught all day.

Later that night I enjoyed a fresh local trout, pan fried to perfection, at a small, West Yellowstone restaurant …the next best thing to catching it myself.
