The Bridger Mountain Range looms over the Fort Ellis community at sunset in autumn.

Bridger Mountains and Bozeman

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

The east side of the Bridger Mountain foothills and the small community of Fort Ellis on Bozeman’s east end. If you’ve ever driven I90 through Montana its just before the Bozeman Pass. Shot from some state land at sunset looking north.

  • @John Maslowski thanks, i had trouble composing this one. i kept seeing things in the viewfinder that i wanted either in or out. like the big light-colored field to the left and the barn to the right. i think i got a pretty good zig-zag eye flow going on in the end though :)

  • Bonsoir,
