The Front

front- with clarity

You can shoot stunning country for a week and not come up with something you’re pleased with. On my last evening I staked out this scene in the stark rugged country of Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front. This is the last place in the lower 48 where grizzly bears still wander onto the prairie. One of the most powerful ecosystems I’ve experienced.

Stars in the Pines

Rocky Mountain Front

I spent all night in the remote Rocky Mountain Front, trying to come away with the best representation of what I was seeing. It’s always interesting shooting in complete darkness in grizzly country. But that’s Montana, where the stars burn brighter. Magazine/book editors, please contact Michael Hodges for licensing fees.

Dawn Creek

rain forest

The furthest inland temperate rainforest in the world. Taken in far NW Montana at dawn. The temperature was -5, and I could not feel my fingers after the shoot. This special country holds a remnant population of grizzly bears. Let’s hope they hold on. Magazine/book editors, please contact Michael Hodges for licensing fees.

Inland Rain Forest

Montana-Inland-Temperate-Rainforest-creek-2-h

The Inland Temperate Rainforest stretches from northwestern Montana to Idaho, and on to Washington. Very few people even know it exists, and it is the largest of its kind. I spent the night near this creek in -20 temperatures, and woke at dawn to achieve the image. By the time I left the creek, I could not feel my hands or feet. The lush greenery in the image hides a bone-chilling cold. Magazine/book editors, please contact Michael Hodges for licensing fees.

The Road Home

Sunset Road

This scene was one of the crucial moment every photographer makes during their trip. Is it time to go home? Has the action died down, and extreme weather boxed you in? In this case, yes to both questions. It’s never easy packing up and pulling out of Montana. But the great state never lets you leave without blowing your mind one, last time.
