An Uncommon Sight

One species that I have long been fascinated with is the Nighthawk. Higthhawks and Nightjar’s are such unique species that they almost beg the attention. Part of that allure is their size and yet incredible maneuverability. Most often they can be seen at early morning or late evening right when all the insects come out […]

The C-47 Skytrain

Since this week is honoring the 72nd anniversary of D-Day, it seemed appropriate to put up another post about the C-47, C-53, or DC-3. Without a doubt one of the most well used aircraft to come out of WWII the, DC-3 with all of it’s conversions made it such a versatile plane. Many are well […]

Can’t Beat Montana Thunderstorms

I know just about everyone says that their state gets the best thunderstorms but I do love them here in Montana. This day started out crystal clear and by the end of the afternoon we head one massive thunderhead smack dab above us. Thankfully we didn’t get any lightning which was good considering all of […]

It’s all about Perspective

Ever since I started taking my camera with me while on my fishing adventures, I have come to not only really enjoy that type of photography but am also learning a lot. One of the nice things that I am learning about is how to better deal with mid afternoon light which is something that […]

In Memory of D-Day

Today is a very important day in World History. Seventy Two years ago, thousands of allied ships and men stormed the beaches of Normandy to break the German hold on Europe. While it was only part of a much larger war, it was the start of getting back what was taken. Many brave men were […]

A Great Way to End May

Yesterday I got a box delivered with my tear sheets from Trade a Plane. I was very fortunate to get the cover of the Third May issue. It was great timing seeing how the second May issue was Dad’s. As far as I’m concerned there is nothing better then seeing your photographs in print. Of […]

Fun Fishing over Memorial Weekend

With the week of stormy weather finally over, Memorial Day Weekend was looking to be a marvelous weekend to be outdoors. This time of the year can be difficult fishing due to the amount of mountain runoff from snow packs melting. But some stretches clear out faster then others and we found a great stretch […]

Last year I made sure to go to the Memorial Day Parade here in town, sponsored by the American Legion. It was the first Bozeman parade I had gone to and they really did a nice job. This Monday is Memorial Day and there will again be a parade this year. I urge everyone this […]

In Honor of Fleet Week

In honor of fleet week it seemed right to post something about those that sail the seas. A number of years back at Wings over Houston Airshow we had a great rain storm come through which made puddles all over the place. This worked out great for certain images and one fitting example was the […]
