Feeling Black and Blue

As one of the latest post says, I was out this past Monday working with the thunderstorm that was passing through. I love when the thunderstorm come through Bozeman. They always bring cooler temperatures, great clouds and of course lightning! The best part is, thunderstorms are great for black and white photography. I love working the clouds, there are so many possibilities. Tight graphic images and wide landscape shots are both easily obtainable. Of course you have to find the right spot first.

I drove from one end of town to the other looking for that right spot to work the clouds. The one challenge with Bozeman is that there is a limited number of places you can go to work around the buildings. A lot of the best places you have to hike to. This is alright, it gives me a challenge. So for this challenge I went south. There happens to be a road that goes into the mountains and before that i this spot. A place with some housing development but not much. I was a good spot to work the clouds on the ridge.

I always love working around Bozeman. I get out of my truck with a camera in my hand ready to shot and someone will drive by, give me a weird look and keep on going. It always amuses me. No one seems prepared to see some photographers by the side of the road shooting the clouds. I look for those out of the way places but sometimes you just gotta pull over.
