One of my favorite road trips was in Montana on Route 2- the Highline - that runs along the top of the state. I find the landscape in the great plains to be exhilarating -- something about the minimal land and the huge skies makes me happy. These photos were taken more than 10 years ago, while I was at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, Montana. I shot them with black and white infrared film, one of my favorite films, which is no longer made, alas.
All three of these photos are part of a RiverWinds Gallery show in Rhinebeck at the Wells Fargo Advisors office on the 2nd floor of Montgomery Row, right on route 9 in the middle of town. The show, called The Skies Above, features painting and photographs, and can be viewed during business hours, M-F, at their offices. For more information and to see more images from the show, check out www.riverwindsgallery.com. The artists' reception will be held September 17, from 5-7.
