Piece description from the artist
I was on my way back to a rented cabin after a September day of fly fishing on the Bull River in Northwestern Montana when I spotted this field. As is common in Montana, late afternoon can be flooded with light so special any scene becomes special. This field, with the Cabinet Mountains in the background, is such a place. This particular photograph is experimental for me anyway, as I have run it through some HDR software that I use from time to time.
Kirk Beeler has been doing landscape photography for more than twenty-five years. From Vashon Island in Washington, his home since 1988, photography and fly-fishing have taken him throughout the Pacific Northwest and the world.
Kirk was raised in a small town in Eastern Washington located near the Cascade Mountains. The many summers he spent high in these mountains left him with an appreciation and wonder of the natural world that he felt nothing could capture; that is, until he discovered the camera. The desire to bring these places home led directly to an interest in photography.
Kirk shoots primarily medium-format transparency film, as he believes this medium still creates the highest quality photographic images. He uses two Fuji medium-format cameras because of their heavy duty construction and sharp, high quality lenses. For broader landscapes, he uses a Nobelx 150, a German rotating lens camera that delivers true panoramic images.
