July 30, 2009
The other morning I was at Brooks Lake west of Dubois by sunrise and sitting in my truck alongside the road just below Brooks Lake Lodge watching the Lodge horses slowly making their way across the meadow and willow flats towards the ranch corrals and whatever their reward might be for doing so. The weather is in the mid 30's but dead calm and seemingly very pleasant. Several of the horses are wearing bells and the soft jangling is a melodious reassuring sound in this wilderness setting. I watch and photograph them all as they make their way along thinking some of these photos could make for some interesting paintings.
