Artist's Description

My cousin’s ranch is on the Rocky Mountain Front, west of Dupuyer, Mt, near Swift Dam. It’s quite a drive to the ranch from our house, so most of the time, once we get there, we stay overnight.

Directly behind her house, is a trail head into the Bob Marshall Wilderness. There are a lot of choke cherry bushes around the house, and the bears were there eating the berries. I decided it was worth taking the chance of meeting a bear, to climb the trail behind the house and see what I could find at the top of the cliff to photograph.

The trail makes a few switch backs, and it’s a steep climb. I got up before the sun came up, so I’d be on top to see the sun rise. I walked along the trail looking for a shot, when I saw the branches of this dead pine tree forming a circle. I sat down and waited…and waited….and waited…

At this exact moment, I framed the sun! :) I was wildly excited and my early morning hike up the trail was worth it!

This is the first time, I framed the sun and I was inspired by the moment!
