“I Will Live In Montana…” (Capt. Borodin)

“I will live in Montana. And I will marry a round American woman and raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me. And I will have a pickup truck… maybe even a “recreational vehicle.” And drive from state to state. Do they let you do that?”, Captain Borodin, Hunt For Red October.

I always think of that quote when I think of Montana.  It cracks me up.  I thought I’d post a few more of my favorite pictures from our summer Montana trip.  A very friendly horse and some very green fields with a background of snow-capped mountains at sunrise.

Both images were processed with a series of curves adjustment layers to balance out various areas of the image. Nothing fancy…

  1. One of my favorite scenes also, even when he goes on to say that he will spend winters in Arizona and jokes about 2 wives.
    Never been to Montana myself, and very unlikely I’ll ever live there, but I would love to see it someday. These are gorgeous.

    • Pretty unlikely I’ll ever live there too, but I wouldn’t mind it 🙂 BTW, I enjoy seeing NYC through your pictures — I’ve never been there myself.

  3. I drove through Montana once- it is breathtaking, and I loved every minute of it. Your photos really capture the “feel” of the place, which is so hard to do. Show us more!
