Evening at Camas National Wildlife Refuge

While birding this week at Camas National Wildlife Refuge, an water oasis in the Idaho desert, the sun peaked through the clouds lighting up the Sawtooth Mountains to the west.  Meeting were scheduled and I had to leave before the sun set, but the light, snow, shadows and mountains thrilled and inspired me.


A great wat to finish an afternoon in the wilds of Idaho.

Everything about the view is postcard perfect. Excellent capture! That would be hard to walk away from, even for a meeting.

Looks so serene. I guess sunset over the mountain will be as lovely as i could imagine.

Have a nice weekend Bill!

This is the kind of scenery that lifts the heart and makes one (stuck in Chicago) long for the west.

The light on the mountains is glorious. Definitely a great wild moment from Idaho!

Beautiful, Bill, the snow covered mountains highlighted by the sun and the water, all wonderful.
Spring does come a bit earlier in my part of the country but your turn will come.

Wow so beautifully.
Looks like a bit north of Sweden. Maybe because my distant relatives emigrated to Idaho.
