Glimpses: A parting shot to show off the best of Montana
If you’re a subscriber (if you’re not, what are you waiting for?!?), you know the last page of each issue is dedicated to our Glimpses photo – a parting shot from somewhere in Big Sky Country that is always worth 1,000 words.
Our last Glimpses comes from Circle, where photographer Brendan Whitcomb captured one of those you-gotta-see-it-to-believe-it sunsets.
Here’s Brendan’s descriptions of the image, “Lonely Sunset“:
It was Oct. 26, 2014, and I was racing home to see my daughter’s Halloween costume. Commuting many miles to work means face time is at a premium. I felt the tremor of rubber pounding the pavement as my V10 pushed the drumming carousel of North Dakota farther behind.
In a passing glimpse, I was aware that twilight had awakened on the scenic Montana Highway 200 outside Circle. My foot vacillated on and off the accelerator as the day slowly came to rest. And when I finally pulled over, time and efficiency had given way to the moment.
I grabbed my camera and aimlessly frisked the local landscape for a subject. A displaced herd of deer and a few trees later I stumbled upon this hallowed enchantment. The scene seemed to have a life of its own that captured the essence of Halloween.
