Montana-Idaho trip

I used to do an annual pilgrimage to great flyfishing waters in late June on the Henry's Fork (of the Snake River) for wild, wily, large trout.

1. On one such trip I made it most of the 800 miles the night before but camped a couple of hours short of my destination, awakening very early the next morning and immediately getting on the road. En route between I-90 and Last Chance, ID via Ennis, MT I came upon what I recollect as a daybreak scene of the Madison River flowing thru a valley with condensation forming immediately over the river as it wound back & forth across the valley due to the cold morning mountain air.

Canon 20D, 17-85mm @ 85
ISO-100, f-7.1, 1/15 sec., polarizer

2. Later that afternoon I was scouting out another section of the Henry's Fork but was fascinated by this "as far as the eye can see" vista of these daisy-like flowers (which I believe are in the Aster family and known as White Mule's Ears).

Re: Montana-Idaho trip

Fog and mist always present interesting photo opportunities and the first shot is not exception. In the second shot your angle makes it seem like the white flowers go on forever. Russ I was curious why you shot the second one at 1/8 second F18? I would think it was on a tripod but why the relatively long exposure?

Re: Montana-Idaho trip

Thanks Randy. Re the long exposure, it was the product of other desired settings, ie f-18 to get DOF (although at 17mm that was virtually a given anyways) and ISO-100 because.....I always shoot at ISO-100!!! Shutter speed of 1/8 sec was deemed adequate (vs increasing ISO or reducing aperture) to properly expose as the afternoon lull in winds had everything fairly still.

Re the "goes on forever" flowers, this is an area 1/4 mile deep and 1/4 mi+ wide...and doesn't capture all of it!

Re: Montana-Idaho trip

WW a true sea of Wyethia Helianthoides with a few cousins (yellow mule’s-ears) Wyethia Amplexicaulis and a variety of other wildflowers staring to show, Prairie Smoke, Penstemon and Lupin when looking through that lake of white blooms…

When talking to my relatives who went up and opened "Cabins" over Memorial Day week the majority of Mules-ears were past their prime and the small early snow melt flowers were basically gone. On the other hand they had success collecting Morels (requires a permit from the SNRA) which was enjoyed during dinners, plus they dried a few for future use. Somehow I'm pretty sure they will all be consumed before we get up there in July...

Re: Montana-Idaho trip

Beautiful shots Russ, The first one is my favorite, that mist(fog) on the river is really quite dramatic. Well done.

Re: Montana-Idaho trip

Great. I love the layers in the first one. The second one is simply splendid.
