Hoodoo Pass

This photo was taken on Hoodoo Pass on the Idaho/Montana border. I was bow hunting and, of course, shooting photos along the way. The sky suddenly became cloudy and defused creating a dense color. The grass was also wet, helping to make the forest more vivid. It is amazing how much the light can change the photograph in instances like this. One minute the landscape is dull, and the next moment the cloud cover is perfect and the landscape is alive with color! The combination of the light and moisture, with the Fuji Velvia film created an image that almost looks like a painting.

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.
