I plan to spend a large part of the summer out on the road with my camera. At each location I shoot what I like, how I like to shoot it, but I’m also challenging myself to look at things in a different way. This was shot on a ridge overlooking open range land south of Anaconda, Montana. Usually I would focus (focus – get it? – I made a photography funny…) on the wide shots, the mountains, the sky… and ignore small stuff like wildflowers. So this is a different take on the scene.
(Fun fact about the purple flower thingies. They are poisonous. According to the “Montana Plant Life” website they are long-spurred lupines. Sheep that eat them can die, and cows that eat them can produce calves with birth defects.)
