This year in Montana, the months of September and October were switched. I don’t know who had the authority to do this, but September was somewhat cool and wet, while October was sunny and almost perfect. Crisp, blue bird days where the changing leaves stayed attached to the trees. After two weeks of this a storm came in and blew all the leaves to the ground within a couple of hours. But before that, I shot… a lot. I have an amazing group of athletes that I get to photograph while home in Missoula.
