Cover photos captured the best of Montana
Just in time for the new year we’ve got a look back at the images that made our covers in 2014.
It’s a fun look back at the year of Montana Magazine issues, which started with a cover of a curious bobcat and ended with a cover that captured perhaps the cutest cowgirl in the state.
Of course, we couldn’t have done any of this without the wonderful group of people who share their work with us each issue. Our cover images were made by a diverse set of photographers. From Jaime and Lisa Johnson, who captured the snowy bobcat (January/February issue), to Lynn Donaldson who made the image of the tough cowboy riding at the Wild Horse Stampede in Wolf Point (March/April issue).
Gordon Sullivan captured the lightning bolt striking inside Medicine Rocks State Park for our March/April issue. Tony Bynum got a Glacier National Park mountain goat lounging in the unbelievable backdrop for our July/August issue.
We featured the Grand Prismatic Spring inside Yellowstone National Park, by Tom Murphy, on the September/October cover. Finally, Riley Jones was the adorable feature of our November/December cover, in an image made by Leland Howard.
A snowy slideshow: Winter arrives in Montana
It’s hard to beat the winter scenes Montana produces as we move deeper into winter.
And lucky for us, our Facebook friends have been out and about capturing the beauty. Here’s a few examples of the images they’ve captured.
Thanks to everyone who shared photos on our Facebook page. Have photos of Montana you’d like to share? Email them, along with a short description and photographer information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Montana springtime slideshow: Clouds and baby animals
April is here. As most of Montana continues to shake off the winter, it seems like the right time for a springtime slideshow.
And thanks to our great Facebook friends, we’ve put together a pretty nice set of images to share.
In some ways, we could call this the Mark LaRowe show. Mark shared a handful of amazing shots, including the calf, the Ninepipes weather and the baby bighorn images included here.
Also have to give a big thank you to Catherine Dotson (McMillian Ridge), Ken Stolz (Freezeout Lake), Travis Scott (rainbow) and Yvonne Moe Resch (McGregor Lake) for sharing images with us.
Our readers easily the best. Enjoy!
