Artist's Description

Mount Powell, at 10,105 feet, is the most notable peak in Powell County. Named for early settler John W. Powell, who came to this area in 1856, the mountain gave its name to the county when the county was formed in 1901.

When the U.S. Congress created Montana Territory in 1864, they supposedly said “Let’s call in Montana,” using the Spanish word for mountain. It was a good name as most of the state has mountains of various shapes and sizes.

Taken April 1, 2010 looking north from Deer Lodge County into Powell County, Montana.

Nikon D80 DSLR, Nikkor 16-85 mm wide angle/tele/zoom lens set at 26mm.

ISO 100, f /27.0, 1/45 second.

Finished in Photoshop CS4.
