Seemed to be appropriate to the fall / Halloween season here in the US. Shot handheld with an 18-200mm lens.
This panorama of Bellingham Bay, Washington, has a few glitches (probably far more obvious to me than anyone else) but I like it because I inadvertently caught my photography pal David (photosbydavid.wordpress.com) shooting the same scene.
Average altitude = 6000 to 8000 feet.

Favorite Tune = “Too Much Pork for Just One Fork” by Southern Culture on the Skids.

Please note: No cows were annoyed during the making of this post.
Looks like summer to me!
Near Priest Pass, Montana. Altitude about 6000 feet.
Tried to cross Mullen Pass. Denied! Too much snow on the road.
I read that the U.S. Air Force has a number of nuclear missile silos scattered around the farm country north of where I am now living. I did a little research and headed out this morning to see if I could find one.
Doesn’t look like much from the side of the road. A fenced in area with phone and power lines running into it. But under the ground there should be a Minuteman III nuclear missile.
The front gate.
The sign on the front gate and all other sides of the fence.
Please note: all shots were done with a zoom lens from a public road. Similar, and more detailed, photos and maps of missile sites can be found in many places on the internet.
