    is there any chance of getting larger versions put up (say, 1680X1050)? I’d love one or two of those for my desktop! nice photos.

    paulWTAMU –

    all of the following photos were taken on the East Fork Salmon River Watershed this last weekend — everything is abloom. You are free to use them as you wish with the exception of selling them or for commercial purposes without permission. It’s the Spud Creek sub-watershed, a landscape rested from grazing for close to a decade now.

    WWP purchased the Greenfire Preserve about a decade ago, and acquired the grazing privileges attached to it (Spud Creek Allotment) on this landscape – a conservation buyer has since purchased the property and hold of the allotment and livestock have not been officially grazed.

    Hiking the landscape is like walking on powder/flour where there isn’t rock – the soils are so unique – and as you can see – the vegetative expression is remarkable.

    If you would like full-resolution originals, please email me and i’d be happy to share.

    the ones linked are more than large enough, thank you!! It’s hard to find good desktops for higher resolutions monitors.
