Purple clouds over Pablo

I took this photograph about five miles south of Flathead Lake near Pablo Montana. There always plenty of opportunities to photograph clouds, but the color and formation of these caught my eye.  The deep purple tailing off into orange seem to be characteristic of late summer to fall sky,  although this is obviously dependent  on the weather.  Flathead lake being a huge body of water surrounded with huge mountain ranges consistently  produce incredible montana skies. The lake and surrounding landscape is an endless supply of opportunity for photography and outdoor living!

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.
