This is at Many Glacier in Glacier Park Montana (2010 summer)  on the east side.   I never would have taken this photo if I hadn’t seen Moose Peterson’sfine  photo of it in his magazine BT Journal vol.13.4 . THANKS MOOSE!   Yep, had to be up before dawn to be in place and ready. It is several photos then stiched together using photoshop.  Simple process.

 I would supply a link for Moose but don’t yet know how. Sorry. Google his blog. He has decades of informative articles.

I was there to take pictures of Mountian Goats. My third visit.  While resting in camp I was looking for something to read and discovered I had several BT Jounals in the rig and surprise surprise one on Glacier Park which honest I did not plan.  I saw his photo and decided I would try it what the heck, dispite the early alarm. 

The goats were shaggy, dropping their hair, and a point and shoot or a normal lens would have been fine to use.  These goats are in your face! So was a marmot which I think people have been feeding since he walked right up to me. See, I missed focus on the goats eye. I think this photo is funny, which is why I choose it.

    On the goat and the squirrel thing, did you mess with the focal distance in the computer or is it in the lens?

    (The goat looks like he’s telling you a story about his youth.)

      No photoshop focus magic. Just basic raw to jpg adjustments.
