Walking with My Camera: Chasing Sun Lines on Big Knife Creek

May 20, 2018 To peer through the tiny camera view finder at the sun lines in the racing water is such an odd and exhilarating experience. The constantly moving lines of light are a challenge for me to capture.  I enter a world no less real than images in my everyday travels, but when I …

Walking with My Camera: Leaves, Blossoms, A Bear and Water

Last night it rained hard. This morning the sun warmth feels moist. The new wildflowers on my walks include Shooting Stars, Arnica, Arrowleaf Balsamroot, and Clematis. The green is surging. In sunnier places the Serviceberry blossoms are out and in the cooler places they are getting ready to unfold. A couple nights ago I saw …

Walking with My Camera: Bear Tracks and Remembering

4/14/18 As I work on what will be a bark bear head sculpture, I have been thinking about my relationship with bears. I am starting to see bear tracks on my walks. A couple days ago I saw grizzly tracks. In my thirty-seven years of walking this land where I live I have only seen …

Skiing with My Camera: Sun and Snow

New Snow on Grey Wolf Peak 2/14/18 The winter of 2016 was the last time I skied (because of some broken parts of my body) but starting last Saturday I have been able to ski again―out the back door― lots of snow ―some sun―joy. The snow had all melted away and it was starting to …

Walking with My Camera: Rain and Gray with a Little Blue

2/4/18 Today was gray with rain. Some parts of Montana had snow and -6 degrees, but we didn’t get the arctic air. It was a 40-degree rain in puddles on top of the ice and snow kind of day. Click on the link below for a video that gives a little taste of my walk …

Walking with My Camera: Snow Light and Catkins

1/26/18 Yesterday morning fast big clumped snowflakes filled the air. By the end of the day the snow had melted out of the trees, but the snow still carried the impact of the way the snow came down. When viewing the shadows and the sun bright reflections up close it felt like I had stepped …

Walking with My Camera: The Light Isn’t Gone

1/17/18 Below the inversion layer it has been mostly gray for days. On Monday morning the sun was breaking through the fog. I grabbed my camera and went outside to capture the trees standing in the misty brightness. Traipsing about didn’t yield much photographically but the light and the sun warmth entered my skin and …

Walking with My Camera: Snow Flat and Bright

1/1/2018 The last several days have been foggy with no sun. I was drawn to the sculptural snow lines and shapes in the flat light. Today I went out for a short walk around 5:20 pm. The fog had mostly cleared, and the sun lit up the tree tops with a golden brightness. Jordy the …

Walking with My Camera: Layers and Edges

I found a way to get outside with my slippery walking boot (for my broken ankle) – large STABILicers with some extra straps and my walking poles!  Jordy the Samoyed was happy too. We have over 15” of snow on the ground and it is still snowing. I photographed snow and branch refelctions in the …

Walking with My Camera: Ice in Puddles

Snow accumulating below Grey Wolf Peak 11/18/17 There is snow melt and accumulation depending on elevation. Today’s walk was warmish with a slight breeze.   Jordy and I leaned into a bit of sun with the darkness of daylight savings time pressing near. This week I knelt to ice shapes in mud puddles and settled …
