Paradise Valley, Montana Landscape Photography
We have been fortunate to have had a few good snow storms already this winter and with negative temps in the forecast following Thanksgiving Day, I knew I needed to get out of bed early to catch the magic that only really cold days bring to the banks of the Yellowstone River. On days with negative temps, an eery fog hovers over the the river allowing moisture to rise up and meet the trees to create a dream-like wonderland of ice crystals. On this cold morning as the temperature gauge on my car dipped down to -9 degrees F, I enjoyed taking in the sights and sounds of the cold winter morning. From the distant call of Canada geese to the partially frozen river slushing away at my feet, I realized that I needed this little escape from the hustle and bustle of the holiday weekend.
And a negative temp day isn’t complete without an ice in the hair selfie…
