Meadow Lake under Full Moon

My friend David invited me to go camping and fishing at Meadow Lake in the Lemhi Mountains last week. I brought Ethan and we had a great time fishing and exploring. Here is a view of the Lake under the full moon at 11:30 pm.

Approaching Storm over Menan Butte

It’s taken a while, but I’ve come to appreciate the monotonous sage and basalt dominated landscape of the upper snake river valley. If nothing else it offers a nearly unobstructed view of the sky.

Coffee Pot Rapids

Coffee Pot Rapids is a turbulent section of the Henry’s Fork between Mack’s Inn and Island Park Reservoir. It’s about as lovely as it gets.

Great Horned Owl Rephotographed

About a year ago I discovered a Great Horned Owl that had flown into a barbed wire fence and perished. I noticed a few weeks ago that it is still there. I went out tonight and rephotographed it.

Landscape Photography and Fishing

I promised Ethan I would take him fishing this evening. That was before the storm clouds started rolling in. I didn’t think we should go, but Ethan was quite determined. We went. Our compromise was that I would get to make a couple of landscape photos along the way. Below is probably my best effort. Oh yeah, Ethan caught three fish and I caught zero before the winds and rain came.
