Photos capture Kootenai Falls, cedar grove

OUTDOOR ATTRACTIONS -- Kootenai Falls near Libby and Ross Creek Cedars in the Bull River Valley always are worth a visit and a look.

But Western Montana outdoor photographer Jaime Johnson has a way of making you wonder why you haven't made time lately for a visit.

Check out these two photos he made over the weekend.  His comments: 

We spent two days at the Ross Creek Cedars located in the far northwest corner of the state. We’ve always wanted to go there, but until recently never seemed to find the time. The trip was well worth it. The campground was great and the Cedars are spectacular. We shot hundreds of images.
The Kootenai Falls shot was an experiment. It was a 70 second exposure in broad daylight. It was taken using a +10 stop Neutral Density filter on the lens. This basically reduces the amount of light that can get through to create the image. The longer the shutter is open, the more motion that is captured (making the water look fuzzy).
