Montana Call of the Wild Photography
Got up early yesterday morning, after many winter days of clouds and snow the sky was clear and the stars were out. I headed down to the Flathead River and waited for the sunrise. I always like to see a mixture of clouds and open sky if I'm going to photograph a sunrise because the chances are than best for a colorful sunrise. The sky was almost clear with the only clouds laying low along the southern horizon. As the sun began to light the sky I felt a little disappointed because it looked like the sunrise wasn't going to amount to much but I had been watching the fog as it rose off the river. I thought that if I could catch the first rays of the sun as it filtered through the trees and fog rising off the river I might end up with a good sunrise photograph. When the sun started to rise above the horizon I found a spot between two evergreens that framed the sun filtering through the fog and took several shots. I was happy with the result !
