A sure sign that fall is on the way... and now it is here!

Coneflower blossom fading away
Once again, I seem to have fallen WAY BEHIND on posting here... not sure why but things do seem to get in my way. This Coneflower image is from the end of July when our unusually hot summer had taken its toll on my garden... causing the Echinacea to finish blooming earlier than usual. This fading blossom struck me as photo ready so here you see it!

Something different for today... wild horse from the Pryor Mountains... Spring 2010

wild horse close-up
The Pryor Mountains, which span the Wyoming/Montana border, are home to a herd of wild horses. Although I grew up in Wyoming and Montana and have visited numerous times since heading east years ago to attend college (and staying after that until the present date), until this past June, I'd never visited the wild horse preserve. Now that we visit annually due to our ownership of a house in nearby Red Lodge, Montana, I spent a day with a high school classmate (an accomplished photographer) searching out the horses and photographing them. This is just one of the many images from our adventure... and I'm quite proud of it!
