Room to Breathe – Bridger View

Room to Breathe – Bridger View

This weekend I thought I'd share a bit of a drive we took the other day - we stopped at the Heron rookery by the road between Bridger and Belfry Montana. You should be able to click on the photo and have it come up larger - though it's not available as a print at this point (it can be if you're interested). Field Journaling notes and more photos to come. Happy Easter!   … Read more...

MOVING SALE!

MOVING SALE!

Well, not your normal moving sale, though. You see, we had a plan to keep track of the items we needed, and which could stay in storage. We had the best laid plans...and you know how that goes. This week we dug into storage and FOUND the rest of the boxes of binders!!! (and the crowd cheers) To celebrate, we've marked them down to just $10.00 each. Perfect for a travel journal, making your own summer smash book, or just to document the everyday with lots of embellishments or just … Read more...

Room to Breathe – Red Butte

Room to Breathe – Red Butte

Finally, after all these years, software has allowed me to process this image as I envisioned it upon capture. Taken back in the summer of 2010, I had been waiting for light to shine on Red Butte, just north of Cody, Wyoming in a way that really highlighted its geologic beauty. A thunderstorm had recently passed through, and the clouds had just started to break up enough to allow the light to filter through the moist air, leaving rays highlighting the scene. And it captured the bonus of a bird, … Read more...

Field Notes to Field Journal – part two

Field Notes to Field Journal – part two

Here's the final entry for my field journal. I took more time to get the words down, decided to put it in an InDesign file I could add to over time (have a couple more entries prior to this one). But the final format is the same as other projects I do right now - using pocket pages cut to size so they fit in my Field Journal Notebooks. And I had two more photos to add, so for this I included a 4x6 insert between the two pages: Field Journal Sunday 6 April 2014 Mike and I took a drive … Read more...

Field Notes to Field Journal – part one

Field Notes to Field Journal – part one

Now that we have a few trips under our belt in this area, the process of keeping a field journal is starting to take shape for me. Since most of the trips have been short jaunts, I've not taken many field notes, but rather, type them out on my ipad as soon as possible after arriving back home. I'm also downloading and processing photos in the evenings as well. So now it's down to starting the actual journal. I hope to have a few pages to share here soon. Some of the trips I've already shared … Read more...

Room to Breathe – Sylvan Lake

Room to Breathe – Sylvan Lake

Not everyone who visits Yellowstone gets to see this gem of a lake. It's reserved for those who enter or exit the park through the East Gate. People in Cody know it well, though. Sylvan Lake rarely sees crowds and has a couple of pullouts with picnic tables that make it an idea spot to stop and find some room to breathe. Glacier Lilies grow here in spring and the occasional bull bison visits as well. When driving in to see the thermal features of the park, I rarely stop, but some mornings, like … Read more...

Today’s Outing 2 Apr 2014

Today’s Outing 2 Apr 2014

Despite waking to a surprising 8" of snow on the ground here in town, we still ventured out to look at a few houses on this gray day. Guess who we saw: And actually, we saw three pairs of Sandhill Cranes in this field and another one (possibly two, due to the car roof blocking the view) flying overhead. They were a bit far for the reach of the lens I brought with me, but it's good to know they're here. Not all will nest in this area, but one pair has been found nesting not far from this spot … Read more...

A Drive up North Fork 1 Apr 2014

A Drive up North Fork 1 Apr 2014

Today was glorious - a warmer spring day with lots of sun and little wind. We're between storms, and figured the animals would be taking advantage of the fine weather as well, so Mike and I decided to take a quick run up North Fork after lunch. We saw tons of deer and bighorn sheep as well as lots of small groups of elk. The large group of elk were in the fields around Wapiti. Bison were on the road - looking fine and healthy: And up closer to Sleeping Giant Ski Area, we came across this … Read more...

Room to Breathe – Lamar Valley

Room to Breathe – Lamar Valley

Planning a trip to Yellowstone (again) this year? This is the time to start since only 22 days from today the Park opens for the summer season - Mammoth Hotel and the Snow Lodge at Old Faithful Village will be the only lodging available in the Park. While we're not sure yet if we'll make the trip there (the East Gate won't open until May 2), I find myself pulling out a few photos from the past that help give that 'room to breathe.' I hope to share one each week throughout 2014 sometime on the … Read more...
