I know I've posted tons of photos of the Montana sky over the past few years, but when it continues to take my breath away, I can't help but share it with the blog universe. Last night was a spectacular sunset-- complimenting the beauty of Obama's speech which was on TV around the same time--and I was bouncing out of my chair in ten-minute intervals in order to capture the variations in the sky.
One of the things that always stuns me about Montana sunsets is the fact that there can be so many colors and shifts within a single night. I decided to continue the sky theme throughout the night, and photographed until 1am. As my time here draws to a close I am reminded of how thankful I am to have grown up in such a beautiful place.
Here is a collection of photos taken last night on my upstairs deck between 8pm and 1am. (They are almost all unaltered...save an exposure adjustment here or there.)
