Wild Spring Weather

Spring weather in Northwest Montana is wonderfully unpredictable.  Hail, snow, rain, wind , then calm sunshine can commonly be present in a single afternoon.  During that calm period though, one has to be ready with an easel and brush and can capture some very unique lighting and landscapes.
