I'd like to be able to pat myself on the back over this shot with gorgeous mountain goats walking through a massive dramatic landscape... but I can't. This is really a pretty common occurrence in the area above Glacier National Park's Hidden Lake. I've photographed this location over a dozen times and have had goats come in close to me every time... It's probably because I don't really shower much while traveling in Montana (once a week is more than enough) and they probably assume I'm just another dirty animal.
I'll be out in Glacier again this summer, so if you run into me out there be sure to say hi... just don't breathe through your nose.
Anyways, like everyone else in this crowded nature photography scene, I lead workshops, I teach processing instruction in person or worldwide via Skype screen sharing, and have a website with images, workshop info, prints, and yadda, yadda, yadda. My summer is filling up fast, so if you'd like to book a workshop just give me a shout! www.ryandyarphotography.com
