Fog in the Bitterroot

This photo features the bitterroot river in the early morning as the fog is burning off. I really like to photograph this area in the spring or fall because of the vibrant colors and the way the moisture rises up from the valley in the morning. Often times the trees will be covered with icicles as well. I have witnessed this scene dozens of times, but this day had a magical feeling and i couldn’t pass it up! The combination of the light, fog and river created a stunning composition and feeling of warmth. These are definitely the moments in photography that keep my curiosity alive!

About the author

My original inspiration for landscape and wildlife photography began in northwestern Wisconsin, where I was raised observing the hilly farm and lake country landscapes. I was drawn to the Rocky Mountains and Montana in the mid 90s, when I relocated to Missoula to pursue photography. I have been fascinated with the land and with photographic opportunity since. I attended the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in 2003 and 2004 and since graduating, have enjoyed incorporating photography into my every day life. I spend virtually all of my spare time outdoors, where the natural world continues to be a source of creative inspiration for me.
