July Sunset - Montana, USA by rocamiadesign

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This was taken early last summer, while I was learning to use the P80. I got a new Kodac for Christmas, but I think the Nikon will be my favorite. It’s easy to use, even for somebody who is as mechanically retarded as I am.

I wanted to upload this photo now, as a reminder that warmer days are coming. January is the hardest winter month for me, knowing that we still have four more months before spring actually reaches Montana. I hope this warms those of you who are also tired of a “winter wonderland” landscape. Montana certainly deserves its nickname, “Big Sky Country”.
