Spring is slowly arriving in the Upper Snake River Valley of Idaho. Snow is melting, birds are migrating, and the temperatures are hovering at or above freezing (even overnight sometimes). I’ve had a fun time photographing the minimal landscape this winter (it’s one of the only ways I have to cope with the misery). Here are a few photographs I made over the last couple of weeks. I hope I don’t have to make any more snowy photographs until November or so.
