Spring Arrival of Mountain Bluebirds…

The Mountain Bluebirds have arrived and with it so has spring!  On Sunday after church the kids along with their father built some bluebird boxes to put up around the farm.  Hopefully they will help entice more bluebirds to nest and hang around for the summer… _Z3A7907

Star Trails and Northern Lights…

Last night’s buzz was that there was a pretty good possibility of seeing northern lights, which is something I’ve been wanting to try to shoot for a while now.  I’ve also wanted to try shooting some star trails, so here are my first attempts…IMG_1989-Edit

The bright green glow from the northern lights…IMG_1995-Edit-2IMG_2004-Edit

I thought these were pretty fun to do and can’t wait to do some more the next clear night and throughout lambing season.  🙂

A Little Bit Fallish…

 

The temperatures have dropped and we have had a few killing freezes already in northwest Montana.  A few flowers are still doing well though….

Most of the leaves here are still green but some of the shrubs are starting to change….
