I was lucky enough to work at an event that took me over to Las Vegas and then on to the beautiful Mountain Sky ranch near Bozeman in Montana. High and on the edge of the Rocky Mountains, the state is roughly the size of Germany but with a population of just 3 million. I don't think I have ever been anywhere so ruggedly beautiful; the weather would change constantly, depending on height, valley, time of day, one moment closing down in a mist of rain and the next opening up dramatic vistas with rays of hot sunshine; the air always held an intoxicating scent of wet grass and wild sage. This is horse country of course and I had to quickly brush up some some long-forgotten childhood skills and get back in the saddle, with the additional handicap of cameras, lenses and rain. Around the periphery of my work, I tried to build a small portfolio of images as a personal view of this wonderful part of the world and the great team at Mountain Sky. I printed the photos in a small leather album with Tintoretto art paper by Queensberry. My aim for the future with this one? To go back, take more pictures and make a bigger book, bound in saddle leather!
