Lucky Peak Lake, Idaho

I just sold a copy of this print. It brings back some nice memories. At one point in my career, I was doing a fair amount of business travel. Ir’s not that much fun, but I got to visit some neat places even only for a brief time.
 
We did some work in Boise and once I had a free afternoon to drive around. Lucky Peak Lake (reservoir) is on the Boise River a couple miles east of downtown. State Route 21 runs alongside it and for the next dozen or more miles climbs to the top of Moses Peak. It was (is) a beautiful drive through the mountains that provided plenty of photographic opportunities.
 
The crystal blue skies are delightful in the color version of this image, but I like the black and white with the puffy white clouds and the interesting tonal variations throughout the image.

We visited a friend today with an amazing set of bird feeders, and quite a collection of visitors. I made a bunch of images, albeit from a warm room with a nice cup of coffee. (It was maybe 20 degrees outside.)

This little guy was quite captivating with his cocked head and a quizzical look wondering what I was doing.
