A Howling great start to the New Year

12th January 2015
With nighttime temperatures sometimes below -10 fahrenheit and wind chill factors combined it was a chilly but exciting start to the New Year for me in snowy Montana USA. With a fair amount of powdery snow already in place, conditions looked picture perfect for photographing predators in the snow.

By Day 2 the wintery landscapes got even more seasonal when a new weather front brought in another 9 inches of snow in the valley and 16 inches reported in the mountains by snowing continually for 24 hours!

The snow was often thigh high deep and going off track wasn't recommended. As some of my pictures will show you it didn't deter the animals bouncing around but did slow them down rather!

Certainly the white stuff provided some extra drama to the photographic opportunities and coining a phrase I picked up whilst there my 10 day stay in Montana was "crazy dangerous".

Needless to say I loved every moment and it was very tough having to return home to the English grey skies.

I have added a couple of favourite photos on the home page and more in the gallery under the category of A Howling Good Time" However, with about 10,000 images to go through it may take me awhile to sort through them but my initial favourites will be on line shortly.

Happy New Photo Year 2015
