I’m in the middle of a great trip to a ranch in Montana that I’ll never forget. The nights here are always strange and different. I’ve only gotten outside a few times to take photos, mostly because of inclement weather. During the first week or so, the moon so high and bright that it caused everything to get blown out. That’s no good and makes for a boring night. Who needs a boring night? The moon was just about to rise behind the mountains, and the night air was crystal clear. The soft cloud from top left to bottom right is the Milky Way, and it gave the night a nice texture.
