This is a picture that I took in eastern Montana. The beauty of the ranch and farmland with the edge of the storm front overhead just captivated me.

Thanks for looking Julie and Vito.

Vito, I do have a few other pictures from this area but they didn't turn out as well as this one. With a little post-processing I might be able to make some of them presentable, so perhaps I'll post one or more of them in a few days.

well....i'd like to see if you changed the composition, moved around or anything like that...



i was thinking....a shot, with the fence going across...from the right corner...with the buildings above it...

i dunno...i'm really liking the comp of this shot here....

but remember to take a bunch of shots, different compositions, from different spots, different angles....it'll help you learn, and you'll get some good shots

Yep, I know what you mean Vito. Unfortunately, this is the only shot of this subject that I have. What I meant when I said I have other shots from this area is that I took other shots in the same region, but not of this subject.

i see, seems you might have the opposite problem that i do...

i takea TON of pictures of everything (as much as i can in one day using my 128 lol) and some of them are rushed....

i gotta find a happy medium, take a lot, but make the most of every one..

Thanks, digcamfan, I appreciate your compliment!

These are really big spreads in the east part of Montana. To eke out a living the ranchers and farmers gotta have lots of land, usually passed down for generations within the same family.

I love the vastness of that area but there isn't too much to break up the flat expanses unlike in the western part of Montana which is dotted with mountain ranges.

what time of day was the photo taken, I love this kind of lighting. Ive found the between 4 and 4.30pm is the best time for that kind of light here.
