The Flathead on a Smoke-Filled Day by 

The 2012 Forest Fire Season has been long and difficult. We haven’t seen a blue sky in ages. Here, the Flathead River flows westward across Sanders County, Montana, while the Burlington Northern Santa Fe tracks, leased by Montana RailLink curve along the river’s bank.

Taken 9/14/2012 near Perma, Montana.

Born in Montana, raised in California, I’ve been holding a camera most of my life. I particularly love photographing the grand landscapes of the Pacific Northwest.
