Big, Big Skies

Up in the Gravelly Range – Cameron, Montana

One thing I love about being out in the American West are the skies. The enormous skies. The big, big skies. The skies that just seem to go forever. And they cover equally huge panoramas. Vistas that just fill your senses with. Wide. Open. Space. Taking representative photos of the west can be a real challenge, because so many times the resulting images look flat and lack any real sense of scale. But this is one that works that way for me; it’s our rental car, framed in the vast openness of the Gravelly Range in southwestern Montana.

  1. Yes, I know what you mean by the skies and the land that seems to go on forever. The one pano I’d really want to take is coming up from the south of the Denver Metro, on I-25, and there you see the city skyline dwarfed by the sky and mountains to the west, plains to the east. I don’t think CDOT would allow me to shutdown about two miles of interstate so I can take my 270-degree pano. 😉 🙂 😎
