The lake is frozen over. There is snow on the beach. The distant Anaconda Range (sprinkled with the last light of day) is looking pretty icy. Thanksgiving is a week away.
IT MUST BE MONTANA WINTER!
Because it is still technically fall and I like to classify my photos by Montana season, it is difficult each year when most of my photos begin to look pretty wintery. Some time each November I cave and start calling posts Montana Winter rather than Montana Fall, even though the really short, dark, days are yet to come. I have a similar problem in late winter, when there is still a month of winter, but the country starts looking springlike.
Here is a 'wintery' picture of Georgetown Lake, Montana, actually taken in the last month of Montana Fall.
