I took a four day trip to through Idaho recently and I was amazed at how different the landscape is from the north. Montana appears to be much more like the prairies but you get into a couple of these valleys on the way to Idaho and everything changes. There is something calming about this desert landscape which I have yet to figure out.
I encountered my first sun dog (pictured above, aka Parhelion) which I was stoked about. It just so happened that a Norfolk Southern train was passing by but I managed to snap the pic right after it passed.
I have some more pictures that reflect the landscape but they get boring after a few, Instead here’s a random collection of some others.
I also went to a WinterGlow festival where my camera had a bit of wierdness to it. Check out how the light appears to drag off in a direction. What’s creepy is that it sortof happened in different directions. Odd. Have yet to figure out why this happened. UPDATE: After looking at the pictures again and a friend mentioning that it almost looks like blowing snow, I realized that this effect was due to a small amount of frost or something on the glass of my lens. I like it 🙂
And of course I also went to check out Bogus Basin resort.
Special thanks to Miss Pearl!
