Serviceberries

Serviceberries

Marty’s photo of the day #3984: If I look out my second floor writing room window, the land drops into a forest of lodgepole pine, ponderosa pine, and serviceberry bushes. The serviceberry bushes are in full-bloom, but to properly appreciate the scene in a photograph, the photo would have to be much larger than a […]

Great Gray Owl

Marty’s photo of the day #3879: This is a great gray owl that stopped by about a year ago to peer inside my writing room window.

View from my writing room

Marty’s photo of the day #3807: After spending most of this week on a college speaking tour and yesterday catching up on office work, I settled into my red writing room this morning, eager to get back to work on my latest novel. This is the view that greeted me as I sat down. Some […]

Bats don’t like baths

Bats don’t like baths

Marty’s photo of the day #3320: Bats do not like baths! Every summer, I move my office/writing room out onto the front porch. (The porch runs the width of the house and is covered, but not screened in.) This year the flies were a bit pesky, so two days ago my wife, Deb, bought me […]

My writing room

My writing room

Marty’s photo of the day #3055: I recently read a blog about how important it is for writers to have a special writing room. I think I have that covered. During the day, I have a stunning view of the snow-covered mountains, and at night I work by candlelight. Regarding my writing: Time Is Irreverent […]

Western Tanager

Western Tanager

Marty’s photo of the day #2916: What is the most colorful bird found in Montana? My vote is for the western tanager. My writing room is on the second floor, and it has a window wall facing the mountains. Not a day goes by that some bird flying by doesn’t distract me from my work. […]

View from my writing room

Marty’s photo of the day #2895: This was the view from the picture window in my writing room early this morning. The sun was rising on the opposite side of the house, making the trees glow, while Gash Peak was in the clouds. Sure Montana has twice elected a body-slammer Congressman, and we even sent […]

Great horned owl

Great horned owl

Marty’s photo of the day #2859: I took this photo last year and didn’t have to go far to shoot it. This great horned owl landed in a tree right outside the picture window of my second-story writing room. Needless to say, writing slowed down dramatically in my room for the hour or so she […]

Gash Peak glows

Gash Peak glows

Marty’s photo of the day #2819: I’m usually in my second floor red writing room by 5:00 each morning. I start my days working by candlelight, because the candles give the room such a special feel. Sometimes the sunrise hits the snow on Gash Peak just perfectly, and the mountain glows. This was the view […]
