Today was a Big Sky kinda day. This is the south end of our valley where Mim lives. Look for the trees about midway in the shade on the right. Evening comes much earlier at her house than at our's, but snow also stays on the ground a lot longer too. I shot this on my way to work this morning.
I always love the view when I start into Ross Creek Canyon - the home stretch. There are so many layers to this vista. I have promised myself that I'd stop for this picture and it's taken me nearly five years to actually do it. When I'm on the road home, I want to be home. Tonight I stopped.
One picture leads to another, especially when you're not paying to have film developed. I drove ahead to the pullout so I could include the pasture in a shot. I didn't expect horses and I'm sure they didn't expect me.
Okay, now they're done - nothing to eat and I'm frankly boring. If I read horse body language correctly, they're disgusted.
This evening I snuck carefully around the house to catch a picture of this rabbit dead center in my shot. He seems so happy to have the dropped bird seek all to himself. I was so smug at having caught him that I stood up, which startled the other three rabbits that I hadn't seen who then scurried to safety. Come on - I'm Elmer Fudd without the speech impediment.
