Not To Scale

A wide-angle lens is good at showing the scope of a place.

However, it’s not to scale. Then again, two-dimensional representation can’t match reality. Practicality dictates that we can’t have maps that are 1:1.

I don’t think there’s a single place that can be called Montana-typical, but this scene near Red Lodge sure portrays what a lot of folks assume is one of the looks of the state.

It’s as beautiful as it is inhospitable. When I took this photograph last July, the wind and chilly ambient temperature made me hurry to get what I needed.
