Folks post some great photographs here; I thought we could start a thread or two just for photos.



Someone sent me this photo. If there were salmon jumping in the background - it would pretty much sum up what summer is like around here.

Look at the bottom of your compose screen for the hyperlink tags you need to make your links work. Took me a few to figure it out, too.

Great pictures Linda. Thanks for sharing them.

To use the tags - just enter them in at the beginning and end of your link.

The url tags make a link active - the img tags load the image.

If you would all use (bracket)img(bracket) instead of (bracket)url(bracket) the picture should show up without having to click the link.

Yes that is the Beaver Creek Road.I wasn't surprised to see your last picture-I've taken many pictures from the same spot.I personally think that is one of the nicest views in Se Montana,but I'm biased since I grew up there.

Levi, Thank you so much for the Blue Angels! What memories that brings back. I used to watch them almost every weekend when I was a very small child back in Maine. They would fly over the land behind our house, and our family would sit up on a hill behind the house and watch them all afternoon. I haven't seen them perform formally, so my childhood memories are special. What a way to spend a weekend afternoon...

You will have to put them somewhere on the web. If they're on your hard drive the easiest thing to do is probably to upload them to photobucket and then link them.

The first and last pics are on the Bear Tooth hwy, #2 is hwy 14A in the Bighorn Mtns between Lovell and Dayton WY. #3 is the Chief Joseph highway which connects the Bear Tooth hwy to the Belfry hwy.

The Bear Tooth is Harley Davidson's #1 scenic ride in the country.

Absolutely incredible...

This photo was taken about 10 miles east of Miles City along the Baker Highway.



History of Big Horn Sheep in SE Montana:

They were once found across western North American from Alaska south into Mexico.The last known ram of the subspecies that originally lived in Southeastern Montana was killed by Evelyn Cameron's husband - north of the Yellowstone between Terry and Miles City.

Lewis & Clark wrote of seeing hundreds and hundreds of them in big herds when they came through the area.

The ones out towards the Powder River were transplanted there by Fish & Game in the mid-1950s. The are of a mountain subspecies and not of the Plains/Prairie species that originally inhabited the area.

The 1963-64 was extremely cold and snowy - the Big Horns out towards the Powder River/Baker moved into Miles to find food.
Around the same time that they transplanted the sheep, they also let elk loose in the same area - but the elk didn't avoid people to the same extent that the sheep did and they were quickly taken out by poachers. The Big Horns did so well that by the early 70s Fish and Game held drawings for one or two permits per year to hunt them and keep the numbers down.

>>Did you take any of these photos yourself?

Some of them - a few have been sent to me by neighbors.

It's easy to tell which ones are mine, they're the ones that are poorly composed and often slightly out of focus. Susan is responsible for most of the ones that look as if they've been taken by someone who knows what they are going. Here's one she took of the Orthodox Church at Kokhanok (about 90 air-miles north of us). Kokhanok is a traditional, subsistence village - around 90% of the population is of Alutiiq and/or Yup'ik ancestry.

Levi,

In the early 70s I used to see the Big Horns on a regular basis. Heading out from Miles, I'd usually see them just before dropping down into the Powder River Valley near the turn off to Ogdahl's place.

How do you add photos to this link?

Posted by M G (+195) 13 years ago
Kacey
Here's how I do it..
After you click the 'reply to message'
Copy the Hyperlink or Image compubable from the tags below the smilies, then paste in the area where you type stuff.
Go to your Flicker or Photobucket (or what ever pic page you use) open the pic that you want to post. below it should be a URL that looks like this; http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3133/2625711960_6ce773d3e8.jpg, copy it.. back to your reply, Replace the ... between the ] and [ with your URL. then it will look like this http://farm4.static.flick...73d3e8.jpg or that
when you click continue.

That is the easiest and safest way to to it. I use photobucket (free) and me.com (Cost $100/yr.). Others use flicker. Upload your photos to one of those sites and then link them to this site with the img tags.

Some of those pics are amazing. MG, I'd love to have the bridge one in my house!

Given that cameras these days take such good pictures, what is everyone's opinion on the status of photography as a "limited" art form? (Meaning that photographers were/are very good at great shots, but almost anyone can take a quality picture now if you have the ability to at least see the beauty you are snapping.)

Posted by Lorin Dixson (+598) 12 years ago
I have a question, for digital photographers. I had a friend years ago that had a film camera that you could roll the film back and do a double exposure. In the example I am thinking of he was taking pictures of fishing boats at sea, then over the same film would take a picture of the owner of that boat. It would appear almost like a ghost over the original photo. My question is, does anyone know how to get this same effect using digital imaging software? I can put a picture in picture but it doesn't have the same effect.
