Makoshika State Park, Montana
We just got back from a camping trip to eastern Montana. The weather was perfect, the skies almost totally free of wildfire smoke, and there were very few people anywhere we went. At Makoshika State Park I was able to spend quite a bit of quality time with my camera–and the Fashion Queen too! So the upcoming POTDs for the next little while will be dominated by images from there. The lack of smoke and the sun getting lower in the sky as we head towards winter made for sharp contrast and dramatic lighting effects among the various formations in the park, conditions which really excite me visually. I’ve photographed here before (most recently six years ago) so this is really a continuation of a previous series of photographs.
