Artist's Description

Robert and I decided to take a drive, without knowing which way to go. We had to go into Great Falls on business, so we took the camera. After the business was finished, we headed east and along the way, decided to take the exit to Highwood, Montana.

Before we actually reached Highwood, we turned up the Highwood Creek road that lead toward Thain Creek.

The wind was blowing with such gusto it was hard to get out of the car! We saw a magpie ground himself and hold on tight as he faced into the wind like an arrow…He was simply to worn out to hold himself in the air any longer.

But the light was clear and brilliant, with a diamond like color glaze that only Montana air can claim. It was so worth facing the wind, letting it blow the cobwebs from my mind, as I shot this photo.

As I got back in the car, and we pulled away, it was with deep regret that I left this place. It was so peaceful here, I longed to walk through the brush to that place where the bank hangs over the water. I wanted to sit on the bank and dream an hour away…with the feeling of the wind, the swirling of the water, and the Big Sky above me.

The miracle is in this photo that I took from that place. I can go back when ever I feel the need…and enjoy the feelings of magic that exist here…just by looking at this photo. With my image, and your own imagination…you can do that also. Order the photo, and when it arrives, sit on the bank there by the creek, and feel you own little bit of Montana!
This photo was shot with a Nikon D300, and a Tamron 70-300 mm lens. It was shot RAW. As Is
