Every now and then the clouds roll in and create a truly unique photogaphing opportunity right from my back yard. This was one of those times. A huge cloud bank had fromed just below Saint Mary's Mountain in the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana.
I have seen much and been many places but I have to honestly say that Montana has to be my favorite place of all. I want to share this photo with you. It was taken by Josh Schutz in the Mission Mountains near Ronan just north of where I live. This photo depicts western Montana at it's finest. The majesty of the Mission Mountains, the old barn which was falling apart and the community restored it, the freshly rolled hay in the field and of course the 'Big Sky' under which it all sits. Just beautiful. I am honored to live in such a beautiful place.
